Exciting new hard SF thriller series from "Doc" Travis S. Taylor

(Kingsport, TN -- May 1, 2007) -- We are pleased to announce that "Doc" Taylor has placed his latest science fiction thriller Extraction Point with Twilight Times Books.

Extraction Point is the start of an exciting new hard science fiction action-packed thriller series from "Doc" Travis S. Taylor, author of the Warp Speed series, co-author of the Amazon bestseller Von Neumann's War (with John Ringo), and co-author of the #1 Amazon nonfiction bestseller An Introduction to Planetary Defense: A Study of Modern Warfare Applied to Extra-Terrestrial Invasion.

Extraction Point opens with a heart-racing action sequence that finds the leader of the Top Secret Special Research Projects and Operations Directorate of the Department of Homeland Security, Dr. Reagan Brady uncovering a terrorist plot to unleash a new bio-weapon on the world, beginning with the United States. As the chase to stop the threat unfolds, Dr. Brady discovers that the terrorist organization is using technology far more advanced than that currently available on Earth. Somehow, the terrorists seem able to vanish from one point on the planet and instantaneously appear at other points thousands of miles away!

Where did the terrorists get this technology and what will be its final dark purpose?
