Search Terms: Alpha (Search Terms, #1)
Travis Hill

“Search Terms: Alpha” is the first half of a new time travel thriller.

College sophomore Tyler Gallagher loves computers, video games, and Thanksgiving Break. He’s timed the arrival of his computer components with the holiday vacation from school to blast aliens and enemy soldiers alike on his brand new, high-end gaming computer.

When the parts arrive, it soon becomes apparent that they aren’t what he ordered from TechTerritory. Thinking he’s the butt of a practical joke, Tyler plays along, and builds the computer with the obviously fake components. His annoyance turns to shock when the computer powers on.

His shock turns to a mix of disbelief and wonder when he learns the strange “quantum” computer can pull web pages from the near future. Disbelief and wonder soon become fear and uncertainty when he discovers the future might not be so bright.

This was promising: geeky, clever, not even if not overly original. Be great to see where it goes, that’s the trouble when you split something like this up, you’re guaranteed to sell me the next bit! Looking forward with interest to see where things go.
