The Doppler Effect - And Other Stories
Publisher: Positronic Publishing
THREE SHORT NOVELS OF SCIENCE FICTION SUSPENSE
From the Hugo-winning author of Coyote, Arkwright, and Avengers of the Moon come three novellas that combine science fiction, mystery, and crime:
The Doppler Effect -- Never before published, a satirical short novel about how a disgraced college professor and a young prodigy perpetrate the greatest scientific hoax in history: faking an alien signal from outer space.
Frogheads -- A private investigator travels to a Venus that never was in search of a missing youth, and discovers a crime against the planet's native race ... and how those natives exact revenge of their own.
Einstein's Shadow -- In an alternative timeline, a detective is given a dangerous assignment: protect Albert Einstein and his wife as they defect from Nazi Germany to the United States aboard a colossal transatlantic airliner.
The Washington Post has called Allen Steele "a master of science fiction intrigue." This new collection proves again the reasons why.
