New Kindle Book: The Impossible Object

I've rebooted the Harrison Peel stories, with the first release The Impossible Object on Amazon Kindle. I want to revisit the series, and tighten it, add more tales, and basically build an overall story arc to develop Peel and his place in the Cthulhu Mythos. Think Lovecraft meets Clive Barker meets Ian Flemming meets Robert Ludlum, as Peter Clines nicely summed it up in his wonderful testimonial for the book.

Here is the blurb:

In a blend of cosmic horror with weird science fiction and action spy adventure, THE IMPOSSIBLE OBJECT recounts the adventures of Army Intelligence Officer, Major Harrison Peel, who travels the globe fighting the good fight against alien monsters wherever they appear threatening to destroy humanity.

Harrison Peel's first adventures are collected in four novellas:

"Made of Meat" - Terrorists hiding out amongst the hill tribes of Cambodia have accurate intelligence on Western covert operations, and Peel works to break the network before more agents are killed in the line of duty.

"Driven Underground" - An ancient alien city is unearthed in the deserts of Outback Australia, and Peel leads a team of soldiers into its catacombs where no living thing has existed for millions of years, or so they believe.

"Impossible Object" - Peel is assigned to a top secret facility studying an alien artifact, an object that cannot be measured or recorded by any means, that promises to offer up the secrets of the universe, or destroy it.

"False Containment" - After witnessing a mass grave of fused human bones, Peel travels to California to investigate a zero waste technology program using wormholes to dispose of rubbish in alien dimensions.

More in the rebooted series will follow.
