Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) April 29, 2014
Both past winners of the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future contest Steven Savile, International best-selling author of SILVER and the JACK STONE THRILLERS, and David Sakmyster, award-winning screenwriter and author of THE PHAROS OBJECTIVE and CRESCENT LAKE, collaborate to bring us a new, page-turning, supernatural thriller.
After a Near Death Experience (an 'NDE') radically transforms the life of eccentric billionaire Nicholas Sheridan, he becomes obsessed with understanding the experience, recreating the conditions that opened the gate to the unknown.
After recruiting others with similar experiences, they discover amazing connections, common visions and dramatic abilities among people who have come back from the dead. But what they haven't bargained for is that the gate opens both ways. Something has escaped from death and is hunting them. Something hungry...
Kudos for the story are plentiful. “With NDE, Sakmyster and Savile trek across a dark line into very strange country. Equal parts smart and chilling, this is a powerful and important novel.” –Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of EXTINCTION MACHINE and FIRE & ASH
“A wild and gripping ride through the afterlife, virtual realities, real world horrors and everything in between, NDE reminded me of Neil Gaimain's American Gods wrung through The Matrix.” –Stel Pavlou, author of DECIPHER and GENE
Savile was a winner of the contest back in 2003, in "L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future volume 19, while Sakmyster won in 2006 in volume 22.
"This is not the first collaboration of former winners of the contest," stated contest judge Dave Wolverton. "There are dozens in the past and currently."
As it is free-to-enter, L. Ron Hubbard's Writers of the Future, now in its 31st year, enjoys amazing success with thousands of entrants yearly. Created by best-selling author L.
