Hat Creek, California had become the home of SETI (the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) and early on they received what was deemed “the Wow” signal. Everyone was excited.
The original “Wow Signal” was assumed to be possibly sent from an Alien civilization. As a result, the SETI staff waited for decades to receive a second message, but a repeated signal never arrived.
Then, a new signal arrived, one that they called the “WOW2” signal.
Unfortunately the new signal carried with it an ominous message, one that implied that whoever sent it were ‘on the way’. It smacked of ‘an invasion’.
If a full scale invasion was eminent... scientists wondered why an aggressive Alien race would feel the need to announce their intentions?
Despite us human beings trying to anticipate the Aliens next move, there was only one way to respond, and we had to do it BEFORE they arrived on Earth.
Maybe mankind still had a chance if we acted quick enough?
The writing is extremely creative and full of imagery. I love that the story is short. It swept my mind away from the day to day and kept me engrossed in the story. Honestly I enjoyed it so much I wish it was just a little bit longer as it ended quickly. I also love that I felt like I was stepping back in time into another world.
Creative Writing Masterpiece... ~ T.
Denny has a creative mind and this story flows as if you are following a dream. The story tells the tale of a bar keeper's teenage son who works his way through a variety of jobs as he makes his way to the coast to join a sailing crew and eventually makes his way to the New World. Along the way, he and companions share a few 'miss' - adventures.

The story arc is lovely. Tells of the characters moving in and out of the life of the protagonist. I literally cried at the ending. Not going to give any spoilers though. Every single day enjoy the blessings that surround you. Be grateful for the bounty right in front of yourself. Open your eyes and heart and embrace the joy.

I love the story telling style of the author. It is like he is sitting across from you and describing the San Francisco and Bay Area artist, music, counter-culture and vibe of that trippy era. Has a very real and authentic immersion of that psychedelic age.
A journey through the groovy period of the San Francisco in 1960s and 1970s. ~ G.P.
Reading this book felt to me like reading a mini version of my fave book On The Road by Jack Kerouac. I teared up in parts and laughed in others!! Well worth the read if you fancy delving into the life of guy who has truly lived!

It convinced me to try it. When everything you hear from your doctor (I had 3 different ones) is like they are reading the same manuscript and offering nothing different… it was time to look for myself!
