It all starts when an unknown person makes off with a
Thunderbird egg. Yeah. Native American myth, but in the
hands of a Global Dynamics scientific team it's also the
newest cutting edge method for creating weather.
Then there is more freaky meteorology with the temperature
plummeting to somewhere in the 30's. In April. In a four-
block radius of the home of the creator of a portable

But that all pales beside the project nearing completion in
Section Five. Dr. Nancy Russell has had a breakthrough in

the streets right alongside them, participating in the
adventure in a way more intimate than simply watching the
television. The book is a fun time and a great escape from
the humdrum of our own reality.
A Global Dynamics researcher has a breakthrough on her

experiments have a bad tendency to affect the entire town,
Sheriff Jack Carter heads over to check it out. What he sees
blows him away. The project has revealed a parallel
universe, complete with another Eureka-one in which Carter
doesn't exist! But as the two worlds begin to bleed into
each other and residents confront their alternate selves,
Carter may be the one man who can keep both Eurekas from
