The Reality Thief (Deplosion: Book One) -now available on Amazon
What if you could command the physical laws of the universe?
The already controversial Dr. Darian Leigh has outdone himself this time with a magnanimous gift to humanity: a device that can create whole new universes and alter the laws of physics. The theory alone sets the worlds of science, religion, and politics ablaze. Now, if only he could get it working. Little does he know, it already does. Lines between good and evil get blurry when a misguided lab associate and the scheming leader of an influential church join forces to harness the power for the glory of God. What—or who—are they willing to sacrifice to possess the machine? Mired in secrets, betrayal, good intentions, and murder, the struggle to control it will rage for eons.

If they can’t figure it out, they’ll need to convince world leaders to colonize the asteroid belt and save as many people as they can.

There isn’t much time and they can’t save everyone.
What people are saying about The Reality Thief
(5 stars) This is a great debut novel by a new author. I quit reading a lot of sci-fi because they all seemed to be either military oriented or more of what I would term fantasy. The Reality Thief is a throwback to some of the classics of the past — think Heinlein or Azimov. I’ll definitely be interested in purchasing and reading the rest of the Deplosion series. – Amazon reviewer.
(5 stars) A provocative, fun ride! The best science fiction expands your thinking about how the world does (and could) work. Imagination anchored in a real understanding of scientific principles and what might be, a few (or many) years down the line. I found the Reality Thief to be an engaging read, with elements that made me think of sci-fi authors like Neal Stephenson, Isaac Asimov, and Robert Heinlein. Paul Anlee’s professional training as a scientist is evident—the disciplines he draws on are cutting edge, thoroughly thought through, and very believable. Anlee ties a tightly wound story around a philosophical core that will make you think deeply about the nature of life and the universe. I’m looking forward to book 2. Highly recommended! – Amazon reviewer.
(5 stars) This is no mere science fiction book. Paul Anlee does not shy away from tackling the very largest subjects possible, from the existence of God, the passage of countless billions of years, the size of the cosmos, the Big Bang – and better still what existed before the Big Bang – and the potential for the creation of alternate universes with their own unique natural laws. The reader can relate easily to the characters, the dialogue, their reactions to events around them and, without being a scientist, the science. This is an exciting page-turner that easily weaves together all of the elements above together with battles between fundamentalist angels, scholarly intrigue, the break-up of America and the collapse of money. You can’t and won’t want to put this book down. – Goodreads reviewer.
