If you like alternate history, fantasy, science fiction, or just plain good fiction, you should check out Time Spike by Marilyn Kosmatka & Eric Flint. Marilyn is the mother of a friend of mine Ted Kosmaka, another phenomenal writer. This is her debut novel and based on reviews and sales I certainly don't think it will be her last.
Buy it. Read it. You will love it. Keep your eyes open for more from Marilyn Kosmatka and I am confident you will see a debut novel from Ted Kosmatka in the very near future as well. For some of Ted Kosmatka's award winning short stories check out his website TedKosmatka.com. Ted has had his short stories published around the world in several different languages. One of his most recent stories The Prophet of Flores has been included in several of the Year's Best Science Fiction anthologies, and very well could earn Ted Kosmatka a Nebula Nomination and win.
