Opposable Is Coming: New Science Fiction Book Series
Posted On April 19, 2019
Beware. This could be
happening to you.
Something is implanting ideas in Dr. Vanderbilt’s mind. An entity originating two billion light years away, on a planet called Halteres, sends thought spores through the cosmos searching for habitable planets. The spores, Sparks, germinate in fertile minds, creating a bridge between the two worlds. Don’t worry if you have no idea what’s going on, neither does Dr. Vanderbilt.
The first Spark told Dr. Vanderbilt to document every detail
of Halteres. The second Spark told him
to attach prosthetic hands onto his cats.
Don’t laugh. This is
serious. Laughter comes later.
Now the ignorant pawn in a desperate war being waged on the
other side of the universe, it will take a motley band of misfits to convince
Dr. Vanderbilt he holds the key to stopping the imminent alien invasion.
Join telepathic cats, a punk rock veteran of chemical warfare, lilac vengeance, a combustible alien, and a severed head on a deranged road trip through the picturesque Rocky Mountains and Southwest.
Will they knock some sense into Dr. Vanderbilt’s thick skull before all Halteres breaks loose? Don’t count on it.

Kirk E. Hammond loves science fiction, cats, baseball, and words like emulsified, rapscallion, and nincompoop.
Growing up in the ‘80s, he was scarred by badass sci fi movies; Re-Animator, The Evil Dead, The Thing, Robocop, Aliens, Mad Max2: The Road Warrior, and The Return of the Living Dead, just to name a few. The more gore and camp, the better.
Authors he wishes he could hold a candle to include David Wong (Jason Pargin), Chuck Palahniuk, Chuck Wendig, Frank Herbert, H.P. Lovecraft, Philip K. Dick, Christopher Moore, and J.R.R. Tolkien. He likes to think what he writes is funny, but I’d put his ability to write comedy right down there with Ayn Rand and Christopher Nolan.
He’s a naughty boy who needs to be punished. Every twelve years, he changes careers; from biotech dish-pig, to high school science tyrant, to creator, publisher, and purveyor of lies. The main reason he writes is to give his friends (all imaginary) something to do.
And his writing has no deeper meaning. It’s just action, and gore, and drugs, and magnificent scenery, and witty, snarky banter. In fact, he told me, “There’s nothing more depressing than a moral.”
He was born, raised, and lives in Colorado. He does not ski and smokes pot for research purposes only.
The universe planted many ideas in my mind. I pass them off as my own, but know they're stolen. My ideas gain traction, grow, and consume me. I become my ideas. The universe implants the idea of me in my brain. I am stolen.
