A Little LIGHT Reading
Eclipse Worthy Titles For Your Solar Enjoyment
While Arthur C. Clarke’s and Stephen Baxter’s A TIME ODYSSEY series is a little more complicated than a solar storm apocalypse series…it’s definitely worth a good read. The true solar storm and preparation take place in SUNSTORM, but you get the build-up of everything happening in TIME’S EYE. The series is in essence an alien encounter piece, with a sun at the focus. Alien creatures, forced off of their world by the death of their own sun. They believe they are all knowing and advanced, so they do a bit of mucking about with us humans.
The second book SUNSTORM opens up right where TIME’S EYE left off, with the advent of a huge solar event that acts as an EMP and basically kicks Earth’s butt…yet it’s not the end. Scientists predict that another solar event will occur in five years, and the entire planet is on a break-neck plan to protect itself.
Earth leaders unite to protect itself from this crisis, but in the midst of this panic, they find out that this solar event isn’t a natural phenomenon. That an advanced alien race doesn’t exactly want humans to make it.
In FIRST BORN, the final book in the Time Odyssey series by Arthur C. Clarke and Stephen Baxter, things get a bit crazy. The Earth knows about the aliens, they’ve put things in place…and now they are on a collision course, confrontation with this FIRST RACE.
It’s a great series, if you are a fan of science fiction. Especially if you like some Arthur C. Clarke. Stephen Baxter knows how to keep his work alive.
Can’t get enough solar storms…try these titles:

Under a Tell-Tale Sky (Disruption #1)
by R.E. McDermott
The grid is down, the world is in flames, and FEMA is demanding his ship and cargo, but Captain Jordan Hughes isn’t buying it.
When the lights go out, seemingly for good, Hughes quickly finds being stranded far from home on a ship with working generators and a cargo of ten million gallons of irreplaceable fuel isn’t exactly a low profile position.
Faced with rising crew discontent, and surrounded by worsening violence ashore, things can’t get much worse — until they do.
As the remains of the federal government become increasingly corrupt and self-serving, Hughes joins a ragtag band of sailors, farmers, preppers ex-Coast Guardsmen, and dissident soldiers in an effort to re-unite his crew with their families and use remaining resources to rebuild a devastated society.
Along the way they face a desperate and starving population, rampant violence from street gangs and escaped convicts, and powerful warlords created as an unintended consequence of the federal government’s ill-advised use of mercenaries.
by James Rollins
x-Navy SEAL Jack Kirkland surfaces from an aborted underwater salvage mission to find Earth burning. Solar flares have triggered a series of gargantuan natural disasters. Earth-quakes and hellfire rock the globe. Air Force One has vanished from the skies with America’s president on board.
Now, with the United States on the narrow brink of a nuclear apocalypse, Kirkland must pilot his oceangoing exploration ship, Deep Fathom, on a desperate mission miles below the ocean’s surface. There, devastating secrets await him–and a power an ancient civilization could not contain that has been cast out into modern day, where it will forever alter a world that’s already racing toward its own destruction.
