NEWS: “The Berlin Paradox”, Alain’s new book tells the story of a Soviet time traveler

Now available on Amazon

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. As such, here is my little ode to one of my favorite cities in the world.

Consecutively, I’ll be trying something new. I consider this current version of the novelette 1.0, which means, it will continue to grow with time, and if all goes well, in a couple of years we may have updated versions of the same novelette, with extended story-lines and improvements based on reader’s feedback.

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. For now, here’s a synopsis:

After his mother’s death and his consequent expulsion from the Soviet Space Program, a young Russian soldier has no choice but to join his sister in Berlin in the hopes of a better life. There he will meet a mysterious Soviet scientist with access to one of history’s most enigmatic projects: the abandoned Nazi time-travelling program. As the new “Chrononaut” of this classified operation, he will be tasked with finding the purpose behind this colossal endeavor by the Third Reich and whether he can do anything to prevent Europe’s descent into darkness.

Featuring a tightly-knitted plot that makes use of real locations and events, as well as an exhaustive research that is guaranteed to thrill history buffs. Berlin’s most iconic decades include the air raids of WWII, the underground Polish resistance attacks on the capital,the terrifying invasion of the Red Army, the city’s grey resurgence from the ashes of war, the Soviet’s struggle for supremacy during the cold war, the rise of the Berlin Wall, the secretive Soviet Space Program, the obscure Nazi Bell and the final unification of both Germanies.
