Reader Reviews:
“Must Read. Highly recommended to Sci-Fi readers. Very interesting blend of mythology, science, drama & AI. All stories are worth reading more than once. It does not leave you even after putting it down.” ~ Neha

“A book which you can read multiple times … each story in this book is a highly immersive experience…” ~ Kingpk

“Time and tested subjects of invasion, conquest, AI taking over coupled with old-time but unexplored subjects of Djinns and powerful missile-like weapons from Hindu folklore, make for an engaging and diverse cocktail in this book. … Must buy, an engaging read.” ~ Ankita

“The book presents some very interesting ideas too, and is a far better effort than many better selling Indian English-language books that keep coming out with alarming frequency.” ~ Arnav

Stories
1. Eclipse: No attacks, no blood-shed, yet there was an invasion and a conquest. Who are these shapeshifter aliens being hounded by an eclipse?

A Foreword from the Author, on parallel universes: Billions of universes run slightly parallel to our own universe; worlds full of infinite possibilities. There are many humans living in those parallel worlds, leading their lives, in a very similar way to how we are leading ours. But their respective realities differ from ours in some very peculiar ways.
Inhabitants of some worlds have already been visited and are being ruled by aliens. Some traveled through time, back and forth, and some have taken their space exploration to advanced stages using their powerful spaceships. Some created ruthless artificial intelligences that are fulfilling dark, human desires. Some developed advanced weapons technologies thousands of years before we did.
I believe a writer’s brain can somehow tap into this multitude of universes and take a peek into the events happening in each of them. This book, comprised of six stories, is my attempt to narrate to you tales from six different parallel universes. These stories are events that my brain somehow tapped into and captured in detail.
Let me know if your unconscious mind visited the same universes as mine.
