|He Sees Her in His Dreams
What inspires us?
Where do we get the ideas for a new invention, a novel, or a hot-selling computer game?
Ray Perkins, military dropout, lives a reclusive life in a Northern California cottage. He writes computer games that have been praised worldwide, and have become best sellers. But he has never told anyone but his very few closest friends the source of his inspiration for those stories: his dreams.
Almost every night since he was a victim of a strange accident during a secret military mission during the Gulf War, he has had those dreams. Horrible dreams. Of spaceships and bloody battles in outer space above a far-off planet.
And then there is she!
Her sad-eyed, beautiful face and figure dominates those dreams. She seems to call him, beckoning him. Two lost souls searching desperately for each other.
One day a chance glance at a small newspaper story about rumors of alien landings in Nevada strikes a nerve. Maybe there's a kernel of truth behind those frightening dreams. So Perkins sets off on a foolhardy mission to find the truth. And it is a terrible truth indeed, a truth that spans time and space. In our future, over 200 years from now, the alien woman of his dreams really exists. And she, too, has dreams, dreams about him.
But it's not just a story of two would-be lovers trying desperately to find each other. It is a story of imminent danger and a threat to our way of life, for this woman is also the commander of a huge armada of spaceships that are coming here to destroy the Earth!
Will Ray Perkins' impossible journey in search of his one true love and the terrifying truth behind the dreams that obsess him come to a sad, tragic fate?
"Attack of the Rockoids" is not just the story of one man's incredible search for the meaning of his own life. It is an exciting, spellbinding story of high adventure in the grand science fiction tradition.
"Though filled with scenes of action, heroism, intergalactic political intrigue and high drama, the soul of 'Attack of the Rockoids' lies in its heart and passion for building a convincing tale of a love that spans the galaxy. A thrilling story!"
Robert Simpson, former "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones" fiction editor
"If you like Golden Age Science Fiction then you need to grab a copy of this book!"
Teresa Roebuck, Just Can't Resist (book review Web site)
