Note: Amazon: Cosmic Fusion was originally written between January 1973 and September 1982, a mammoth 300,000-word epic novel of "science fiction, sex, and death." Unpublished due to an editorial change at the original publishing company, Eklund revised it [in 2016] for its first publication.
Synopsis: Back Cover: THE SLUG OCCUPATION They arrived in the sky over Earth one fine April day in their ships the color of gold. Seventy-seven ships ranging around the circumference of the globe, ships that seemed to chase the rising sun.

Among the towns and cities spared: London and Athens; Bangkok and Baghdad; Tangier, Paris, Berlin, Moscow, Tijuana; and Winesap, Illinois. ...
