Jon and Gus, science fiction fans from Finland with a penchant for fist bumping and pop culture references, travel to the Portland Comic Con where tragedy strikes. Their hero, Dr Wells, suffers a heart attack. With his dying breath, the doctor exhorts Jon to “find the …” as he pushes a book into Jon’s hands. Following clues inscribed in the book, Jon and Gus discover an alien structure with a mysterious Black Table which they accidently activate, transporting them to an alien world. Jumping from world to world via the Black Table galactic transportation network, Jon and Gus embark on the adventure of a lifetime where they encounter monsters, alien tech, giant vessels made of water and make new friends. But those friends are facing an unstoppable and mindless enemy. An enemy that is destroying the galaxy, and Earth is next in its path. Can two fans from Finland save the day? Black Table is a rollicking yarn of two likeable, wise-cracking friends who like nothing better than pranking each other. That is, except when they are not doing something more serious, like saving the universe. JOIN THE FIGHT, JOIN THE BLACK TABLE NETWORK.

Book review:

Into the world of space operas and galactic empires comes a tongue-in-cheek science fiction book to knock you off your feet!  Two heroes, who rival the friendship of Captain James T Kirk and Spock, accidentally embark on an interstellar adventure.  Grab hold of your seats for this clever and inventive ride into the unknown. Black Table by Anttimatti Pennanen is a must read, 5 star, fantastic science fiction story that readers will not be able to put down!!

Two good-looking dudes from Finland, arrive at Comic Con Oregon dressed in their best ‘Next Generation’ uniforms, oh complete with pointed ears for Gus who appreciates the logic mind of Vulcans.  Fate, destiny or misfortune occurs that day when their beloved Dr. Wells has a heart attack in front of them.  Seconds, before he had pushed a book into their hands and urged them to find something.  Following the Dr.’s clues they find themselves discovering alien technology.  Like Alice falling down the rabbit hole, Gus and Jon find themselves slipping into an alien machine.  Is it a UFO?  Is it a time machine?  They have no idea and blunder their way around what they name the Black Table.  Both Gus and Jon are great characters, quick quips and lots of fist thumping make this a fun read.  Jon is a ‘survival’ guy and equipped to battle anything.  Gus is the techie and searches for the logic and reason in everything.  Together, they combine to make a team who will try not only to save Earth but the galaxy too!  With wonderful alien characters, super world-building, and an awesome sci-fi plot this is a page-turning adventure you won’t want to miss!

I assume Anttimatti Pennanen is a massive sci-fi fan, as the whole script is laced with references to great TV series and films which liven up the story and add that edge of wit which makes this such an entertaining read.  I think all science fiction fans will enjoy this, but especially those who love programs such as Star Trek, the lead roles are both Trekkies after all!  Black Table by Anttimatti Pennanen is a great addition to sci-fi adventures, and comes highly recommended by Artisan Book Reviews.
