The Interlopers (Paperback)
How do we communicate with aliens?
War breaks out in a distant galaxy forcing a spaceship from an ancient alien civilisation, Lamatra, to flee for their lives.
With minimal supplies and a precious young cargo of child refugees, Captain Lathaniel Labarok guides his mighty spaceship, the Zephyrus, through space in search of a place to hide and wait out the war. With supplies critically low, they discover a habitable planet in a new, previously undiscovered galaxy - planet Earth.
Desperate, unable to go home, unable to go further into space, Earth is their last hope.
Back on Earth, Charlie Featherstone, a brilliant, star-struck astronomer at the Tidbinbilla Observatory, makes the discovery of a lifetime when he finds the Lamatrian's spaceship. Charlie realises the dream of all astronomers - that we are not alone in the universe.
