Omega-Alpha Reprinted Due to Current Events
Friday, January 12, 2007  8:43:00 PM

by Lou Gallio

Due to close similarities in world events, reprints are ordered for the book "Omega-Alpha: Spies, Missiles and Clouds of War." The book was originally released in 2001, ten-days prior to 9-11, and reprints are set for January 1, 2007. The story portrays an accidental missile attack on the U.S. by China, and other nuclear threats from the middle east. The author published the book on September 1, 2001, but events in the story are eerily similar to what has happened and what could happen if we continue to ignore reality.

Houston, TX (PRWeb) December 19, 2006 -- Looking for intrigue, suspense, and excitement? Look no further. Due to close similarities in world events, reprints are scheduled for the book "Omega-Alpha: Spies, Missiles and Clouds of War." The book was originally released in 2001, ten-days prior to 9-11, and reprints are set for completion by January 1, 2007.

A book published five-years ago is a titillating story about today's world conflicts, claims the author, Lou Gallio. Reprints are underway for another round of distribution. "Today, the 'Axis of Evil' is becoming more vivid everyday, and like deer in headlights, we need to snap out of it and get more prepared for the worse case," says the author.

Gallio continues, "This is one of those occasions where fiction nearly becomes fact. I cobbled the story together with research on many of the topics, but fictionalized the main plot. This is my first novel, and my approach was simply to take the concept of a computer virus accidentally setting off nuclear missiles, and building some excitement around it. I released the book on September 1, 2001. When 9-11 happened, a tingle went down my spine, because the bombed targets--except for the World Trade Center itself--were the same ones mentioned in the story. The parallel of events are eerily similar to what has happened and what could happen if we continue to ignore reality."

According to Gallio, some key events have already taken place. "Amidst the antics of world politics, the terrorists, invasion of our borders, homeland espionage, Hollywood narcissism, moral decay, social compromises and all the rest, the novel reveals a collage of warning signs," says Gallio.

In fact, some of today's headlines reiterate these signs: "China Submarine Advances Traced to Covert KGB Tech Grab from Japan's Toshiba" (Willy Lam's 'Inside China'). "U.S. Attorney Kevin V. Ryan in California said Xiaodong Sheldon Meng, 42, of Cupertino, Calif., is charged with stealing military combat and commercial simulation software and other materials from his San Jose, Calif.-based former employer, Quantum3D Inc" (THE WASHINGTON TIMES -- by Jerry Seper December 15, 2006). "PLA Critics Hit Inefficient Military, Call Double-digit Defense Spending Increases Inadequate" (Willy Lam's 'Inside China'). "Europe Worries About Holiday Attacks" (Associated Press By Paul Haven, Writer Friday, December 15, 2006).

A professional book reviewer, Barbara Buhrer of, shares her synopsis: "The world is poised on the brink of nuclear war. Any small incident could set off a disaster. There is a virus in the missile control units supplied to Russia, China and some Middle East nations, which could set off the deadly missiles at any time. The virus is caused by the sheer greed of money and power."

Buhrer continues, "When China accidentally launches a missile at the U.S., the president swiftly retaliates with an attack on Chinese bases. All out war hangs in the balance. There is enough excitement and suspense to satisfy even the most demanding reader: political intrigue and scandals, espionage, blackmail, double-dealing politicians, assassinations, industrial espionage and sexual misbehavior. The characters are well developed. The story is well-constructed and moves along at a fast pace, ending with a few surprises." More excerpts: "We're faced with the terrorists, the arms buildup, moral decay, one-government rule, and God knows what else. Who are our real enemies, anyway? "Can we survive the evils of the new millennium? If we continue to ignore the rules of moral dignity, we've lost."

Part of the reasoning for reprints is to help inform the public of the state of the nuclear threat. Readers can see the parallels of world events, and ridiculous shenanigans that could spark a global disaster. The book is a bit satirical, and at the same time, gives you a bitter taste of truth.
