Book Feature: Threshold Shift by GD Tinnams

In the 34th century on the frontier planet of Threshold, Marshal Jacob Klein is desperately trying to maintain a fragile peace on a world where the racial tension between humanity and the indigenous species has been stretched to breaking point.

Ten years before, Klein was instrumental in ending an attempted uprising by the Threshians, but in the process he lost his wife and became estranged from his son. Old and weary, he finds himself increasingly marginalised and addicted to a performance enhancing drug. When his supply is abruptly cut off, a chain of events is set in motion that causes the murder of an old friend, the imprisonment of a Threshian leader, and the arrival of a disfigured man.

Jacob must not only face up to his recent choices but also to a past he has been running from for over two decades. For you see, Jacob Klein has a secret he can no longer ignore, a secret that will change the planet of Threshold forever.

"It's John Wayne meets John Wyndham in this debut novel of frontier colonists, aboriginal lizard-men and psychic experiments gone awry." - Amazon Review

Gary Tinnams has worked as a barman, a call centre operator, an IT support analyst, and a software tester. But during all this time he was also an insatiable reader of science fiction and fantasy books like Susan Cooper's The Dark Is Rising Sequence, Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game, Robert Charles Wilson's Blind Lake and Greg Egan's Permutation City. He is very fond of weird, mind-bending stories and decided quite early on to try writing some. In 2006 and 2007, he was in the top 50 shortlist for SFX magazine's Pulp Idol and continues to write to this day. You can connect with G.D. Tinnams on his blog or via Twitter.
