John Henry Hardy’s “The Legend of the Phantom Effect” released to explore possibility of extraterrestrial life and complications of contact with humans on Earth

It is estimated that there are over 300 billion planets in our universe alone, and the possibility of other universes than our own. With this number it is impossible to imagine the absence of other intelligent life forms on other planets or in other universes. Author John Henry Hardy explores that notion in “The Legend of the Phantom Effect”, an exciting science fiction tale in which an ordinary journalist becomes involved with an alien civilization as the apocalypse looms in the imminent future.

Harpie Colcek is a newspaper reporter who stumbles upon the landing site of a space ship, sneaks aboard and learns the commander and the passengers are the only humanoids. The crew and passengers are an advanced civilization fleeing the planet Rau because its sun is dying.

When Harpie reveals his discovery to the world, chaos ensues as militia groups and frightened citizens begin to target those who are suspected of being extraterrestrial. As a chain of events unfolds and a new world is revealed, the future of the human race hangs in the balance as superpowers prepare to unleash a plan with the potential to change everything.

The Feathered Quill Book Reviews writes about, “The Legend of the Phantom Effect”: “Author John Henry Hardy writes from the perspectives of many characters, both humans and extraterrestrial…It was refreshing to read a story about space that differed from the typical alien invasion theme.”

Readers will enjoy the twists and turns of the book as well as enjoy reading about the possibility of learning about and meeting intelligent life one day.
