A strange intergalactic, reality show with Earth the centre of its entertainment has falling ratings so maybe it’s time to move on, destroy Earth and concentrate on something new. The black humour, satirical observations of human nature and the eventual conclusion are quite unexpected. A most unusual tale told with great aplomb.

If you like Jay Martel you might also like to read books by Douglas Adams, Tom Holt and Christopher Moore.

Synopsis

Channel Blue by Jay Martel

Earth used to be Galaxy Entertainment's most lucrative show. The inhabitants of the Western Galaxy - the saviest, richest demographic in the Milky Way - just couldn't get enough of the day-to-day details of the average Earthling's life. But Channel Blue's ratings are flagging and its producers are planning a spectacular finale. In just three weeks, their TV show will go out with a bang. The trouble is, so will Earth. Only one man can save our planet and he's hardly a likely hero...

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
