Terence Park Hi all,

I write Science Fiction and my current novel, The Tau Device, is a take on Space Opera which explores the culture and mystery of alien civilisations.

Lory Gato enjoys a privileged life, hopping from world to world, sending reports of his gourmet experiences to those back home, who can't afford the stars. He gets sent to T'negi 36, an out of the way planet where humans have a small presence. As new kids on the galactic block, humanity get the scraps — T'negi 36 is nearly airless and it'll be a long time before it's fit to live on. Like any self-respecting businessman, Lory is a socialiser but the few bars on T'negi 36 are closed. There's been problems with humans which the t'negi, like good hosts, try to gloss over. He arranges to meet a t'negi xeno-archaeologist, Liasse, who is researching a long dead civilisation. She believes whatever destroyed it is still a threat.
Lory has a run in with Earthers - humans who believe their manifest destiny is to (somehow) overthrow alien civilisations, steal alien terraforming technology, and colonize.
The technology that powers interstellar civilisation suddenly fails... then it turns out that the Earthers have powerful allies. Lory and Liasse are thrown together in a desperate bid to survive.

My editor noted (I) have played to my two strengths, alien culture and slightly elliptical dialogue. In particular the mystery and weirdness of alien cultures come across loud and clear. He went on to suggest that its Kindle genre should include Mystery and Culture.

The Kindle release date is 17th March 2016 and it can be pre-ordered at:

paperback ISBN 978-1-326-57329-4

large paperback edition ISBN 978-1-326-58085-8
