Dear Readers: 


I know many of you have been anxious (and mildly irritated) about having to wait to hear about the release date of MEG: NIGHTSTALKERS. The publisher, Rebel Press wanted to tie the novel's release to a MEG movie announcement and the June 6th launch of their amazing new website . While the site will launch on time (see the special sneak preview link below) as of the preparation of this newsletter we're still awaiting a studio announcement. When THAT happens, expect a SPecial Alten MEG update.

That's right... SPAM. (Sorry, it's been a long 17 year wait).

MEG: NIGHTSTALKERS features Angel's terrifying offspring, Bela and Lizzy, the monstrous 120-foot Liopleurodon from MEG: HELL'S AQUARIUM, and another Miocene Monster straight out of VOSTOK.

Can't wait for the book? I've included a peek at the cover art (not final), a synopsis of the story, and an opportunity to receive the first three chapters of the book.

Hope that whets your appetite.


--Steve Alten

In this fifth (and final?) installment of the best-selling MEG series, Nightstalkers picks up where MEG: Hell's Aquarium left off. Bela and Lizzy, the dominant Megalodon siblings from Angel's brood have escaped the Tanaka Institute to inhabit the Salish Sea in British Columbia. While Jonas Taylor and his friend Mac attempt to either recapture or kill the "sisters," Jonas's son, David embarks on his own adventure, motivated by revenge. Having witnessed his girlfriend's gruesome death, David has joined the Dubai Prince's ocean expedition which is tracking the 120-foot, hundred ton Liopleurodon that escaped from the Panthalassa Sea. Haunted by night terrors, David repeatedly risks his life to lure the Lio and other prehistoric sea creatures into the fleet's nets, all while battling his own suicidal demons. Steve Alten weaves these story line's together in a page-turning thriller which culminates in a final showdown between the most dangerous predators ever to inhabit the planet.

Laugh of the Month
Archaeologists in France discovered traces of copper wire located in a thousand year old cave  and announced it was really a French scientist who invented the telephone. Upon hearing this, British archaeologists located traces of plastic in a 2,000 year old cave and declared an English scientist had discovered fiber optic cable 2,000 years ago. Not to be outdone, Israeli archaeologists investigating a 5,000 year old cave found nothing - declaring ancient Jews had discovered wireless communications 5,000 years ago.
