The Blood Calls You Back

by Mike White

Publication Date: 31/05/2016


Joe is a humble Android programmer of the “average” variety who thought kids were messing with him when he heard strange chanting coming from all around him in his house on a Saturday. Before long, things get a lot colder and he finds himself in the Ice Age due to a strange device held by an ancient chieftain named Bear. Smart phone support is nowhere to be seen, and this lady is claiming that she’s his great-grandmother with quite a lot of “greats” on the end. She seems to view him as some kind of sorcerer and shortly demands he provide her with planes, cars, and flatscreen TVs. How much can he even help? How did this even happen in the first place? On top of all that, she claims that the device can even see into his own future.

Do either of them want to know about their own futures?


Blood Calls is just one series set within the world of “Newcomer” about time traveling and strange intelligences: much more to come from both.
