|Plot Summary of Sinister Barrier|
|"Bill Graham is walking along a street when an eminent scientist falls from the sky next to him. Further investigation shows that a number of other scientists commited suicide on the same day for unknown reasons. One however left some cyptic notes that told Graham this was no ordinary death.
Largely based on the theories of Charles Fort, The book tells of the war to free humanity from Vitons. Invisible at first, the telepathic parasitic energy beings feed off the misery and strife of humanity and react to their discovery in a violent manner. Can humanity find a weapon against the Vitons? Read the book and find out."
Ian Jones, Resident Scholar
