Discovering that Earth is on a collision course with the sun, astronaut Roger Palmer undertakes a secret mission to find a solution and save the planet from certain destruction. He and his sidekicks are determined not to panic the population, but when he is shot and nearly killed, all hell breaks loose.
Matters are further complicated when he is abducted by an alien race who, it turns out, live on a similar planet facing the same fate in a parallel universe. Roger effects peace between the two worlds so they can work together to save their races and to find another home for the inhabitants of Earth.
With fast-paced action, unexpected twists, and heart-pounding success, Darrell Talbert has crafted a fine science fiction tale of Earth-Shattering Events.
