Read an Excerpt from Dennis W. Green's Adult Science Fiction Novel ~ Traveler (The Traveler Chronicles, Book 1) & Enter the #Giveaway

Welcome to my tour stop for Traveler by Dennis W. Green!

Book Tour Information & Schedule:

Traveler is an adult science fiction novel. The tour runs July 6 – July 17 with reviews, interviews, guest posts and excerpts. Check out the tour page for the full schedule.

About the Book:

Blending mystery, police procedural and sci-fi, Traveler is a thriller in the tradition of Daniel Suarez and Dean Koontz, with just a dash of Jim Butcher.

Police detective Trav Becker can travel between parallel realities. So can other versions of him. And one is systematically killing every Trav he can find.

Trav must fight to keep the very fabric of time itself from unwinding as he hunts the most dangerous quarry of all… himself.

He must hunt the most dangerous quarry of all… himself.

Read an Excerpt:

I pulled open the top drawer of my dresser, but instead of the sweatpants I normally wore to bed, I pulled out a women’s nightshirt. It was gray, with Angel stenciled on the front in glittery script.
I looked into the drawer.
It was full of girl stuff. T-shirts for working out in, some underwear, couple of pair of socks. There were sweats at the bottom of the pile, but not black like mine. These were pink with the university logo across the butt. Definitely not the pair I was looking for.
These were Mary’s things. And in fact, this was the drawer she had used when she stayed over. But I had cleaned it out weeks ago, and re-appropriated it for myself.
I stared at the drawer like a pervert in the lingerie department. We had broken up months ago. All that was left was a drawer full of her stuff.
A drawer that I distinctly remembered emptying. Just as I remembered re-filling the drawer with the items I had previously kept there.
I pulled open the next drawer down.
Yep. Sweats, t-shirts, athletic socks, right where I had stuffed them when it became obvious Mary was going to need a spot. At the time, I remembered feeling lucky it was only one drawer.
I went into the bathroom, wondering if it also would be different than I remembered.
Sure enough, there was an extra toothbrush in the cup next to mine, and an examination of the drawers revealed more feminine accoutrements that I could have sworn I had removed.
So, either I had imagined removing all traces of Mary from my living space, and had been unconsciously fingering her stuff all this time, or I had bagged everything up, stuck it in the closet as I remembered, then put it all back.
Either scenario was way closer to nuts than I really wanted to be.
“Trav, buddy,” I said to myself. “It is possible that this whole mess has affected you more than you want to admit.”
I went over my behavior during the last several days. Was there anything that could be considered erratic? The last thing I needed was being recommended for a psych eval.
But nothing came to mind. I wandered back into the bedroom. I still had her night shirt in one hand.
I breathed her smell in, cursing myself again for driving her away. I thought about bagging everything up and putting it in the closet, but finally just stuffed the clothing back into the drawer where I had found it and finished getting ready for bed.

I turned the radio on softly, but fell asleep almost immediately, and dreamed.
