I’m a huge fan of Peter Cline’s science fiction work, the “Ex-Heroes” series of books really did it for me and was one of the first really well done superhero novels that I was able to read and enjoy. “The Fold” was a book that I picked up and read nearly straight through, only stopping because it was 5am and I had work in just a few short hours, which left me with about 100 pages to read, which I did immediately after work was done.
If you’re a fan of transdimentional teleportation science fiction body horror, this would be a great book to pick up.
