The Warm Hello
When aliens send a psychic greeting to the people of Earth, the broadcast causes widespread pain among humans. Accustomed to lives of repressed regret, the people of Earth are ill-prepared for communication that touches their innermost thoughts, their spirits, their most secret sadness.
Taking the painful greeting as an unprovoked assault, the United States government trains and sends forth a small team to destroy the alien visitors before they can launch a second attack.
If the intrepid team succeeds in its assigned mission, innocents will die, taking with them Humanity’s first chance to learn something about its true place in the universe, its true purpose in the cosmic scheme.
Can a few frightened Earther’s overcome their own fear and sadness long enough to save the lives of some odd-looking creatures from another world? If so, they might just change the way people look at life, death and the great clockwork design of the universe.
Dylan Brody’s exquisite melody of detail flows into the reader much the same as his mobiles finally communicate with the mission’s team members once the humans are open to communication. He has achieved the optimum…the reader is there, and has understood the message: oneness of all, although different in detail.
A Warm Hello is Dylan’s second science fiction novel, his first was the widely acclaimed young adult title, Tale of a Hero and Song of Her Sword.
