Overview

“Our reporter Sam Wilcox is live from the Australia Observatory. Sam, what’s happening?”

“Thanks Gary. Astronomers all over the World are saying that there’s been some strange solar activity of late, something they’ve never witnessed before.”

“What kind of activity Sam?”

“They’re calling them Sun Spikes. I have with me Astronomer Fred Wilson. Dr Wilson, can you tell us?”

“Well Sam, these events have never been documented and no-one has come up with any tangible explanation as yet. Frankly we’re scratching our heads.”

“So, what do you know?”

“For some reason there are wafer thin spikes of light shooting out from the Sun and they’re now threatening to penetrate our atmosphere.”

“And what will happen if they do?”

“We don’t know but what’s even more peculiar is the fact they’re travelling at faster than light speed.”

“That’s impossible isn’t it?”

“Indeed. These Sun Spikes are new to science as we know it. They breach the laws of physics.”

“Are we in danger Dr Wilson?”

“I’d like to say no, but the truth is we have no idea what effect they might have if one or more of these things strikes the planet or God forbid, people.”

About the Author

Andrew has been a radio broadcaster and journalist since 1984. He has worked in commercial, public and now community radio, primarily as a breakfast presenter. In recent years he has taken to writing and published an audiobook for ABC Radio in Australia about WW1 called "All I See Is Mud" which was broadcast nationally across the network. That soon became a paperback and was very successful in both formats. He is also a podcaster with Astronomer Dr. Fred Watson and together they produce Space Nuts. Andrew's interest in astronomy, combined with some of the things he and Fred have discussed over the years inspired his first venture into science fiction writing with Parallax. Andrew has been married to Judy since 1987, has three amazing boys and two (almost three) grandchildren. Andrew is also a passionate golfer which lead him to also write a tongue in cheek book about sports psychology. It took only two days to complete the book based on his own experiences, research, interviews with sports stars and sports psychologists over many years in broadcasting. He lives in Dubbo, NSW, Australia. It's a provincial city and a long way from everywhere but it's home and the five-minute commute to work sure beats living in a big city.
