A youg man with off the wall inventing ideas involving moving to an artificial body is drafted into a secret military project. The discovery of an alien ship, to his surprise. This occupies him for a decade until disillusionment causes a parting of the ways and his transfer. Not too pleased, he comes back, breaking in and ending up in a superhuman body. This leads to a strange odyssey across a USA falling part due to civil war as the backdrop, into Mexico and out into an interstellar space that is far from empty. A slightly surreal first person violet odyssey that is definitely a bit different. Well worth a look.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615525644, Paperback)

The Black Seas of Infinity is Dan Henk’s debut novel, and what a powerhouse of action SF it is! Visions of pulp era heroes fill his thoughts. Taking advanced physics, he dreams big, but harsh reality bites in as he grows up, and he resigns himself to building surveillance drones for the military. After a brief probative period, he’s unexpectedly moved into the clandestine world of investigating crashed alien craft. Fascinated beyond anything he thought possible, it’s a dream come true. His lack of social skills get him fired, but, he’s seen too much. A year later returns and pulls off a bloody heist. Fleeing into the woods, the military in hot pursuit, he makes a mad scramble up the coast. It’s only then that he discovers the world has grown strange. Businesses are closed. Highways deserted. The US has fractured into competing war-like states. But trigger happy locals and violent militias are only the beginning. Death, madness, and the unwelcome return of creatures from beyond this world all await. Think X-Files crossed with the fabulous Alastair Reynolds, and you’ll begin to get a picture of where Dan’s stunning original SF writing will lead you… The Black Seas of Infinity is available in PDF, EPUB or MOBI flavours. Artwork and internal illustrations by Dan Henk. Check out www.anarchy-books.com. "The Black Seas Of Infinity" pays homage to the pulp greats of the '70s and '80s, while exploring some interesting new ground." -Guy Aitchison/Hyperspace Studios "This book is written perfectly, it’s exciting and it has motherfucking aliens in it. It’s absolutely fantastic. I really hope that Dan writes more books like this, because I would read every one of them." -Tattoosday UK "For fans of science fiction, this is a must-read." -The Eclectic Reader "A slightly surreal first person violent odyssey that is definitely a bit different. Well worth a look." -The SciFi Reader "The Black Seas of Infinity is an absolute 'must read' by all fans of things Sci-Fi, and I struggled to put the book down once started." -Tattoo Revolution
