The Communication Room

Strange Fictions Press

"The Communication Room is a smart, fast-paced and original sci-fi novella that provides an intense and thought-provoking look at an alternate history...and future. A fantastic read!" - Jeremy Robinson, international bestselling author of Apocalypse Machine

Leonard Ackerman works at a remote army base trying to solve the greatest threat facing mankind. An alien invasion that has eroded our species down to very few numbers as far as Ackerman can tell. His base is compromised and Ackerman retreats to a laboratory he has never been inside, locking himself there with the enemy right outside his door. Inside the lab are thirteen telephones—from the American civil war through to Ackerman’s present day, about 100 years from now. 

This laboratory seems to be some sort of closed experiment and Ackerman discovers that he cannot exit the lab until the experiment has run its course. The method and ultimate goal of the test is beyond his reach for now... but the first telephone rings and the only thing Ackerman can do is answer...

Mankind is on the brink of extinction in this alternative history -- the one that leads to a post-apocalyptic future in this science fiction thriller. Adam Aresty, author of Recovery hits hard in this breathless race to save humankind from the insidious invasion from an alien species determined to destroy from within.
