MAELSTROM - A full length e-novel by Richard Paolinelli.
Dr. Steven Collins has devoted his life to one cause: finding a way to prevent a catastrophic collision between Earth and an asteroid. But when Collins turns on his Earth-saving creation, he rips open a hole in time and space itself that hurls him forward in time, where he discovers to his horror that the device he created has caused the very global Armageddon he was trying to prevent. Collins now must try to undo the damage he has done, but the few surviving members of the human race are slowly dying off and just beyond the shield lurks a madman who seeks to dominate the human race or exterminate it.
