Publisher's Summary

Sometimes, the stories come true....

Across oceans and ages, the same tales have persisted.

The lights in the sky. The whirring sounds at night. 

The ships that cross the darkness and the headaches that come when they pass overhead. 

But for some, the feelings have intensified. Lately, it all feels...closer

EJ, a humble artist, senses that the long-foreseen arrival is imminent. 

Denounced as a self-promoter seeking attention and fame, he finds few listeners, but never stops trying to raise the alarm. 

When dusk falls, the prophecy rains down.

Within minutes, it becomes clear that the planet isn't big enough for two dominant species. 

Something has to give - tonight. 

But for EJ and everyone around him, outmatched by an invading force from another world, it may already be too late...

From the author of Not Alone, an official Audible.com Best of the Year Finalist for Science Fiction.

Classic SciFi at it's best!!

Reminds me of the Twilight Zone. This is a classic tale. Great now, great 100 years ago, and I would suspect will still be great in the future. If you love the mind bending that only classic SciFi can provide this story is for you...it was for me. Too short for a credit, but buy it. It is definitely worth the cost.

More Sizzlers Please!!

Highly recommend if you need to occupy a few hours

This was a fun story, the huge pov twist towards the end was really cool. Didn't see that coming.
