Portland, Oregon – October 12, 2011 – Steve Alten releases his new suspense novel, Phobos Mayan Fear, and is October Author of the Month at VJ Books. Phobos is a chilling mix of Mayan mythology and science fiction.
“We are a long-time fan of Steve Alten and his books and are really excited about the release of his latest thriller, Phobos,” reports John Hutchinson of VJ Books. “His third book in the Mayan Prophecy series, following Domain and Resurrection, promises to be a doomsday roller coaster ride of adventure. Phobos is receiving great reviews and we are pleased to offer Steve’s signed 1st editions to our customers,” continued Hutchinson.
About Phobos -
For two thousand years, the Mayan Calendar has prophesied the end of mankind on a date equating to December 21st, 2012. As that day approaches, greed, corruption, economic collapse, and violence seem to be pushing our species to the predicted brink of disaster. But there is another Doomsday threat looming in our near future, a very real threat that can wipe-out not only humanity but our entire planet.
Immanuel Gabriel takes us to the end of the world and back again for one last shot at salvation and a chance meeting with his deceased grandfather, archaeologist Julius Gabriel. In the process, Julius reveals everything the Mayans knew and feared –– from the very secrets of creation that predates the Big Bang to the existence of extraterrestrials that have come to Earth to save our species. The universe is not what it seems, nor is human existence, and that this ticking clock of physicality that begins at conception and terminates with our final breath is neither the end nor the beginning, but an elaborate ruse constructed as a test. And we are failing miserably.
