Clark Jackson, a forty-three-year-old-accountant, discovers a portal to a strange room. At first, the portal serves as an escape, a room for taking naps without time passing back on Earth. He comes to realize that a passageway has been opened when alien species begin passing through to Des Moines, Iowa. The realization of infinite worlds suddenly open to travel dawns on Clark.
In his travels he meets species that are friendly conversationalists and willing trading partners and other species that are not so kind to portal travelers. Meanwhile, the mysterious Environmental Protection Agency has advanced technology at their disposal. The energy signatures given off by Clark’s new device and aliens traveling to Des Moines attract their attention . . .
Upsetting the Tides is the first novel in a new series of Science Fiction/Action/Thriller stories.
