Clowns (First Contact) Kindle Edition
First Contact occurred a decade ago with a traveling circus in the high-altitude desert plateau of Uzbekistan. The US Government has been covertly monitoring extraterrestrial activity around Earth since then but has struggled to make contact. They've kept tabs on the circus and its founder, Buster Al-Hashimi.
Four years ago, Buster returned to the US to start a counter-culture group called The Clowns, challenging the sociopolitical status quo in America.
Clowns asks the question: What would an extraterrestrial intelligence think about our intelligence?
FIRST CONTACT is a series of stand-alone novels that explore humanity's first interaction with extraterrestrial life. This series is similar to BLACK MIRROR or THE TWILIGHT ZONE in that the series is based on a common theme rather than common characters. This allows these books to be read in any order. Technically, they're all first as they all deal with how we might initially respond to contact with aliens, exploring the social, political, religious, and scientific aspects of First Contact.

This is his best work I've read so far. The writing is mature, confident, and most importantly engaging. Great characters, a complex set of problems that are packed up in an adventure that leaves one thinking, what next?
Just in case you are the kind of reader that reads afterwords first... don't be put off by the over earnest afterword, which was totally unnecessary, because the story is told well enough that it needs no explanation.
I have read many of Peter's "First Contact" series , but this is far and away the best one. I implore anyone who reads this to beg, borrow or steal any one of this series because you will be in for the ride of your life. Many thanks to Peter Cawdron for his stories and please let there be many more of them.
