"What a hilarious ride--the ubersurreal meets The Daily Show."
--Tim Dorsey, author of Nuclear Jellyfish In the bestselling and rightfully cult-inspiring tradition of Kurt Vonnegut and Douglas Adams comes First Contact--an hysterically funny satire about Presidential politics and intergalactic misunderstanding. This smart and biting novel by Evan Mandery--an author equally well-versed in the lives of the U.S. presidents, existential philosophy, and the Simpsons--offers much food for intellectual thought along with an all-you-can-eat buffet of laughs, as it chronicles the first close encounters between earthlings and a vastly superior extraterrestrial race from Rigel-Rigel. As the subtitle of First Contact so presciently informs us, "It's Later than You Think."

Praise For…

“First Contact was love at first sight! What a hilarious ride - the uber surreal meets The Daily Show. I’m now staring at the cosmic calendar waiting for Mandery’s next contact.”
-Tim Dorsey, Author of Nuclear Jellyfish

“Very funny... Mandery’s gleefully chaotic narrative packs just the right punch as he weaves in heady inter-galactic topics of censorship, physics, and, yes, the PTA.”
-G. Xavier Robillard, author of Captain Freedom

“Mandery’s sharp sense of humor and habit of addressing the reader make for a stimulating and intelligent read that’s never short on laughs.”
-Publishers Weekly
