The experiment opened a gateway to the stars-and Hell's own spawn was on the other side. Science fiction adventure by the author of the New York Times best sellers When the Devil Dances and Hell's Faire .

When a 60-kiloton explosion destroyed the University of Central Florida, and much of the surrounding countryside, the authorities first thought that terrorists had somehow obtained a nuclear weapon. But there was no radiation detected, and, when physicist Dr. William Weaver and Navy SEAL Command Master Chief Robert Miller were sent to investigate, they found that in the center of the destruction, where the University's physics department used to be, was an interdimensional gateway to... somewhere . An experiment in subatomic physics had produced a very unexpected effect. Furthermore, other gateways were appearing all over the world-and one of them immediately began disgorging demonic visitors intent on annihilating all life on Earth and replacing it with their own. Other, apparently less hostile, aliens emerged from other gateways, and informed Weaver and Miller that the demonic invaders-the name for them that humans could most easily pronounce was the "Dreen"-were a deadly blight across the galaxy, occupying planet after planet after wiping out all native life. Now it would be Earth's turn, unless Weaver and Miller could find a way to close the gateways. If they failed, the less belligerent aliens would face the regrettable necessity of annihilating the entire Earth to save their own worlds. . . .

Chuckled at observation like roll sanity check on Quantum Physics or Lovecraft's Chutlu.
Ditto the gun toting rednecks to save the police against aliens though Higgs Boson particles gate.

This is a thoroughly enjoyable read. The threat is apocalyptic; the battle heroic, even epic; the humour is laced through out; the aliens are very alien, yet familiar. Brilliant storytelling by a master.
