Starry Night by Wig Nelson

Kevin Murphy had no intention of changing the world as we know it, but he forgot himself for just a short while, and that was enough.

While walking his English Pointer Misty on a lonely beach one night, Kevin happened upon a glowing blue stone. The stone was not reflecting light, but was emitting a light of its own. He casually picked up the stone and eventually threw it into his beer cooler.

The next day he awoke to a phone call from his father telling him to turn on the television – any channel. What Kevin saw on the screen was a space ship hovering six feet above the Atlantic Ocean 90 miles off the coast of his sleepy little town of Melbourne Beach, Florida. A curious point of interest was that the ship was the same color as the stone he had all but forgotten from the night before. He walked into the kitchen and retrieved the stone from the beer cooler.

When he walked back into his living room and looked at the television, he found that the ship was moving as well.

What follows is a story of absolute power corrupting absolutely and a tense relationship between lovers who are immersed in trust issues. Does might give us the right? Just because we can do something, does that mean that we should.

Starry Night is a light science fiction novel in the form of the cozy. The book is a fast paced visual narration of a high speed examination of human values. There's something for everyone between the covers of Starry Night.

Starry Night was featured at the book signing with Wig on October 7th, at Bookbinders and Watchwnders Bookstore during First Friday Art Walk in the Eau Gallie Arts District of Melbourne, Florida. Bookbinders and Watchwinders is located on Eau Gallie Blvd next to Concepts Restaurant.
