_Outland (World-Lines) (Volume 1)_ by Dennis E. Taylor
Book number one of a planned two book SF pre and post apocalyptic
series. The book is self published via CreateSpace. I read the POD
(print on demand) trade paperback version with excellent fonts and
paper. I will buy the sequel when it is published.
Basically, a group of college students invent a trans-dimensional device
and start exploring a parallel Earth that does not have humans on it.
His description of the wandering Smilodons is unnerving. Then the
Yellowstone Super Volcano blows up back on their home Earth.
The book pays very serious homage to _Wildside_ by Stephen Gould. It
mentions the book in the story a couple of times.
I really enjoy the author's writing style. Short chapters and
continuously changing points of view. Also his books do not take
themselves too seriously. In my opinion, the author's second book, _We
Are Legion (We Are Bob) (Bobiverse) (Volume 1)_, is the best book of
My rating: 4.4 out of 5 stars (I could be persuaded to go 5 stars)
Amazon rating: 4.4 out of 5 stars (141 reviews)
