WESTMINSTER, Calif. - Feb. 6, 2016 - PRLog -- If you don’t own a boat or possess even primitive raft-building skills, you might want to consider what that may mean to your future. Surviving an epic flood is one of the central themes in Howard Brian Edgar’s debut science fiction novel RUNAWAY MOON. Set in 2029, just 13 years from now, this epic end-of-the-world survival tale hinges on a massive collision between Earth's moon and a rogue dwarf planet nearly twice the size of Texas.

That crash causes a monstrous rock storm, which rains down huge chunks of debris over half of Earth causing multiple shockwaves, the largest earthquakes ever recorded, a cracked Pacific tectonic plate and 5,000 feet of sea level rise. This projected 21st century disaster, which hastens Earth’s sixth mass extinction, dwarfs the Cretaceous mass extinction 65 million years ago, which is famously associated with the demise of the dinosaurs. Scientists believe that an asteroid six miles wide caused that fifth mass extinction, which raised sea levels 1,000 feet higher than today's levels, flooding nearly half the continents. Yet, that asteroid was puny compared to the 23-miles-in-diameter whopper that researchers now believe struck primitive Earth 3.25 billion years ago, creating a 300-mile crater. They believe that larger asteroid shook the entire planet for more than 30 minutes and boiled our oceans.

“So imagine the devastation resulting from a solid metal object 1,000 miles wide slamming into the moon at 50,000 mph,” says the author. "Imagine how destroying the moon would affect Earth. The relentless bombardment of debris would wreak havoc, setting off a chain reaction of major disasters that could easily lead to sea levels rising a mile higher than they are today, not to mention the most devastating mass extinction in our planet’s history.”

RUNAWAY MOON follows the desperate plight of two dozen survivors who are forced to live in Stone Age conditions amid dramatic geologic and climatic upheavals caused by the moon collision and its aftermath. As the last humans monitor the relentless sea level rise, they realize their only salvation may come from building rafts and preparing to survive on a water-covered world.

RUNAWAY MOON's frightening scenario turns out even worse than the Permian-Triassic mass extinction 252 million years ago, which scientists believe wiped out a staggering 96 percent of all life on Earth,” says Edgar. “We could be looking at a 99.99 percent extinction level event in the very near future."
