Alien Thrill Seeker

Alien Thrill Seeker

Before being injected by an alien virus, Ben "Coop" Cooper was an alcoholic, washed-up movie star. Saved from dying by an out-of-this-world offer, his body was healed and his aging process reversed.

Now a race of machine intelligences called the Box are hunting both him and Dr. Jessica Acorns, the doctor who created the virus.

It’s curtains for Coop. Or maybe not…

An unexpected side effect of the virus has created Dyrk, a viral personality living in Coop's head.

Dyrk believes he’s a hero and insists he can defeat the Box. But victory over the aliens that can spread their awareness across multiple robot bodies and getting everyone safely off Titan comes at a cost.

Coop has to surrender control of their shared body for a while.

Dyrk has his own agenda. He wants to save Potato, the alien lifeform that is the source of the virus and the most holy of objects to the Box.

Subterfuge, battles with robot hordes, and a run-in with an alien crime boss stand in Coop's way. But he's feeling better than he has in years, and the show must go on!

Maybe when the dust settles, he can figure out what to do with the viral intelligence that has taken up residence in his mind.

About Brian Thorne

I was 12 and sitting up in a tree in Colorado. I had a copy of Dragons of Autumn Twilight in my hands and I was at peace. Thank you Weis, Hickman, and every other author of fantasy and sci-fi that I have encountered since!

I loved stories then and I still do. Now I hope to provide some of that joy and escapism to readers of my own. Thank you for joining me on this journey!
