===About the Book=== In a newborn twenty-first century, tunnels through space-time have connected our planet with hitherto unimagined alternate universes. After many years, the genius minds working at the SCC project have reached out into the vast cosmos to acheive thier greatest dream: contact. But with whom...or what? and at what cost? For something has recieved thier message-an ancient, hostile entity searching for knowledge and life to absorb and annihilate; an entity that has now locked into a faint, persisting signal emanating from a distant, uncommonly fertile feeding ground.....called Earth.
