"The Beacon at Barrington Light" by Mike Watson - IHIBRP 5-Star Book Review

A Haunting & Suspenseful Sci-fi Thriller That Will Keep You On The Edge Of Your Seat!

Overview: Lighthouse Keeper Marilee Harris is on a year-long assignment, manning a subspace beacon at the edge of the Caledonian system. It's a lonely post, but the beacon provides a perfect laboratory for Marilee’s research—That is until she suddenly disappears.

Author Mike Watson pens a haunting and suspenseful space tale in his riveting action-packed Sci-fi thriller, “The Beacon at Barrington Light”. Watson imagination vividly comes to life in this novella as he presents a faction of scientists and soldiers, belonging to a military-styled inter-stellar peacekeeping organization, working to benefit a network of worlds—A plotline that would, in all aspects, blend seamlessly into the Star Fleet universe portrayed in Gene Roddenberry’s popular Star Trek series.

Dedicated Sci-if fans, and in particular “trekkers”, will find great familiarity in the basic setup, characters, and technicalities of Watson’s story. From the development of a sentient AI; to the surprising wonder of a newly created life-form; to the development of space station technology; to the interactions between alien species, starships, and their crews; to the outposts peppered on the edge of star systems; to tech-raiders and space bandits; to the political and military games played out in outer space; and to the families who dedicate their lives to the betterment of the whole, Mike Watson’s Hard Sci-Fi Thriller has it all.

This fast-paced, fascinating tale will enthrall sci-fi enthusiasts from the very first paragraph to the last. “The Beacon at Barrington Light: A Novella of the Trilogy-Cluster Confederation” strongly appeals to Hard Sci-Fi and Sci-Fi Mystery enthusiasts, ages 13 and up. This novella can be read in one sitting, and I highly recommend this read to anyone who loves Hard Sci-fi Action and Adventure Mystery Thrillers.

Congratulations to the author on this award-winning story! This novel will be permanently featured on my website at under IHIBRP 5 Star Recommended Reads!
