Description

Winner - 2012 P&E Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Novel

This is where The Andromeda Strain meets Memento...
When an alien suitcase is found in space, a pandemic virus plagues Earth. Ryder Nape must gather survivors to escape an apocalyptic extinction of the human race.

ARIA: Alien Retrograde Infectious Amnesia

Today, Jack caught a bug at work. He catches a bus home. By the time he disembarks, all the other passengers and the driver have fuzzy heads. Jack has caught an amnesia plague, and it's infectious. No cure.

Imagine the ramifications:

The passengers arrive home, infecting family; some shop en route gifting everyone they meet with the disease. The bus driver receives more passengers giving them change for last week's prices and today's amnesia. Some passengers work at the power plant, the water treatment works, the hospital, fire station. Dystopian chaos in weeks.

One man, Ryder Nape, knew about the case found in space and realizes it's been opened, but can he persuade friends to barricade themselves in a secluded valley, hiding from the released amnesia bug? The survivors find love, hope and thoughts of revenge in their heroic struggle against the apocalypse.

ARIA: Left Luggage is a well-written novel with the pace and suspense of a video game (BioShock immediately comes to mind). The balance between character development and plot progression is managed smoothly, along with the thematics, which take the reader through a series of all-too-believable scenarios, chillingly showing how easy it would be for an advanced group of aliens to undermine the human race and have us destroy one another, without the need for any additional weapons or warfare.

"Geoff Nelder inhabits Science Fiction the way other people inhabit their clothes."
-- Jon Courtenay Grimwood

"Geoff Nelder's ARIA has the right stuff. He makes us ask the most important question in science fiction--the one about the true limits of personal responsibility."
-- Brad Linaweaver

Robert J. Sawyer calls ARIA a "fascinating project."

"ARIA has an intriguing premise, and is written in a very accessible style."
-- Mike Resnick
