Time crawlers by Varun Sayal

Blurb-

Alien Invasion, Dark Artificial Intelligence, Time-Travel, High-Tech Mythology, Djinn Folklore, Telekinetics, and life-consuming Cosmic Entities are some major themes in this book which has six tightly-knit, fast-paced Sci-Fi stories.

1. Nark-astra, The Hell Weapon
The weapons he possesses make him the destroyer of worlds, and he burns for revenge. A high-tech take on ancient Indian mythology.

2. Death by Crowd
The dark desires of the masses; darknet websites fueled by a crypto-currency. What lurks in the background – an advanced artificial intelligence?

3. Genie
He rubbed a lamp alright, but what he got was the shock of his life. An entirely sci-fi take on the djinn myth.

4. Time Crawlers
There are individuals who existing in multiple time periods at once, and there are those who know about them….

5. Eclipse
No attacks, no blood-shed, yet there was an invasion and a conquest. Who are these shapeshifter aliens being hounded by an eclipse?

6. The Cave
The fate of an advanced imperial race hangs in balance as a dark celestial entity meets a legendary protector.

My views

My first sci-fi read and i absolutely loved it.

The book consists of 6 short stories-

1. Nark-astra

2.Death by crowd

3.Genie

4. Time crawlers

5.Eclipse

6. The cave

My favourite story was the Time crawlers which is based on time travel, and a person’s co-existence. The transition from one period to another is described aptly.

I loved the detailing in the book and also appreciate the author to have written the stories productively and without any unnecessary drama.

Good language, and i completed it in one sitting.

4/5
