Gate Crashers

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The only thing as infinite and expansive as the universe is humanity’s unquestionable ability to make bad decisions.

Humankind ventures further into the galaxy than ever before… and immediately causes an intergalactic incident. In their infinite wisdom, the crew of the exploration vessel Magellan, or as she prefers “Maggie,” decides to bring the alienstructure they just found back to Earth. The only problem? The aliens are awfully fond of that structure.

A planet full of bumbling, highly evolved primates has just put itself on a collision course with a far wider, and more hostile, galaxy that is stranger than anyone can possibly imagine.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 23, 2018 – The discovery of a mysterious alien artifact in deep space sets off events that culminate in a plot to destroy the Earth in Tomlinson's unremarkable space opera. Sixty-two years into its mission, the starship Magellan encounters a device of alien origins. Working with a crack team back on Earth, Magellan's Capt. Allison Ridgeway and her crew analyze the artifact and realize it's a navigation buoy, as well as the key to creating a hyperspace drive. After months pass, an Earth-built warship captained by "chauvinist parody" Cmdr. Maximus Tiberius joins the Magellan just as humankind faces accusations of genocide after the obliteration of a protected planet. Tomlinson (the Children of a Dead Earth series) loads his story down with a plodding plot and bland characters, but there's enough action and broad humor to satisfy undemanding readers.

Customer Reviews

Great Book

As always, I enjoyed this sci-fi comedy by Patrick Tomlinson. Plenty of humor and suspense and characters I enjoyed getting yo know. Enjoyed his Children of a Dead Earth series as well. Highly recommend.
