Mind Invaders | The Great American Read
by Dave Hunt
Originally entitled The Archon Conspiracy, Mind Invaders is a Cold War thriller in which both sides are fighting to get their hands on psychic power. Computer genius Ken Inman makes contact with the Archons, aliens who offer him psychic powers in the hopes of promoting harmony; journalist Carla Bertelli is working to expose the Cold War plot and understand the Archons, all the while grappling with her dislike of Ken’s fundamentalist Christianity. They struggle with a fundamental disagreement: are the Archons benevolent or malevolent? Ideas about faith, belief, and doubt underscore this clash as they search for the truth.
