Acclaimed Author Daniel P. Douglas Releases New Science Fiction Adventure Novel, 'The Outworlds: War Torrent'

Daniel P. Douglas is a multi-genre author who turns ordinary people into extraordinary heroes. The new novella, ‘The Outworlds: War Torrent,’ mixes military and metaphysical science fiction with alien conspiracies in an epic tale with unlikely heroes

Author Daniel P. Douglas announced the release of ‘The Outworlds: War Torrent,’ a new science fiction adventure novel that is the first in a series. In ‘War Torrent,’ ancient reptilian aliens clash in a war that is the start of a new interstellar crusade orchestrated by evil ethereal entities whose intent is radical genetic purification of the galaxy, and Earth’s Stone Age humans are their next target.

Published by Geminid Press, LLC, ‘War Torrent’ is a novella, and the first book in ‘The Outworlds,’ a series of science fiction adventures set in the early twenty-fourth century at the fringe of human civilization. “Although ‘War Torrent’ steps outside that timeline,” Daniel P. Douglas said, “You can bet that its prequel events, characters, and technology will have a major influence on the continuing storyline in ‘The Outworlds.’”

Douglas went on to say, “The book draws on the mystery of ancient aliens, in particular, reptilian humanoids, and related speculations about their alleged, past involvement with humans and possible engineering of our genes. It’s also a military science fiction story with metaphysical and spiritual components. At times an outer space aliens conspiracy thriller, the bottom line is that ‘War Torrent’ is a good versus evil story with unlikely heroes on a collision course with destiny.”

Named a Foreword Reviews 2014 IndieFab Book-of-the-Year Awards Science Fiction Finalist, Douglas is also listed by as one of 2015’s Best New Mystery and Thriller Genre Writers. Douglas garnered these accolades in conjunction with his debut novel, ‘Truth Insurrected: The Saint Mary Project.’ In it, readers plunge into a storyline featuring former FBI agent William Harrison, who finds himself hot on the trail of a major extraterrestrial cover-up.
