NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Low-level entertainment lawyer Nick Carter thinks it’s a prank, not an alien encounter, when a redheaded mullah and a curvaceous nun show up at his office. But Frampton and Carly are highly advanced (if bumbling) extraterrestrials. The entire cosmos, they tell him, has been hopelessly hooked on American pop songs ever since “Year Zero” (1977 to us), resulting in the biggest copyright violation since the Big Bang and bankrupting the whole universe. Nick has just been tapped to clean up this mess before things get ugly. Thankfully, this unlikely galaxy-hopping hero does know a thing or two about copyright law. Now, with Carly and Frampton as his guides, Nick has forty-eight hours to save humanity—while hoping to wow the hot girl who lives down the hall from him.

A great read

This is a great piece of mind candy. An extremely easy read that keeps you interested. The detail is exactly the right amount of information; it doesn't overwhelm you the way some writers try to do. The footnotes are actually entertaining and relevant.

Suspenseful and Humorus

A poignant romp through the universe aligning pop music lovers, geeks and x-file conspiracy fans

Hugely Enjoyable

Year Zero is a fabulous sci-fi adventure. It's been a while since I've read a book as fun as this. Definitely worth the money.
