Would you like to escape but don’t have the money for a vacation this year? Escape to the brave new world of Terrax, where your first mistake could be your last!
Diane Tegarden’s newest release “Anti-Vigilante and The Rips in Time” is a science fiction novel set in the distant future with its hooks deep into renewable energy that changes the face of the planet.
Here is a synopsis of the book…..
“Terrax, the Crystal Planet, is an exacting world. A place where human physical contact is impossible and stepping outside is virtual suicide. The atmosphere is a hurricane of Coriolis winds and deadly scattershowers, composed of toxic metals formed into whip-like threads kilometers long. Immense Ocean Domes cover over the toxic sludge where the oceans used to be, and the surface of Terrax is covered in crystalline structures, called the Hives, where only the upper crust lives. No one can survive the raw elements; all must reside inside buildings, vicariously living through virtual reality programming.
To believe the tales of “Olde Earth”, a place where clean water flowed from the sky, where the outdoor air was breathable and edible food grew out of the ground? These were no more than nestling’s stories, ancient mythology from a distant Time.
Until the Rips in Time occurred……
What happens next changes Terrax forever.”

Pam Osbey, Radio Talk Show Hostess writes:
“Diane Tegarden writes across genres. Her latest effort delves into planet and shows how society is changed by the use of renewable energy production. She delicately explains the beauty and folly of the human condition through some innovative ideas like a “re-imaging” machine that will enable people to relive emotions and experiences from their past. Throughout the book, Tegarden interjects her native spirituality, detailing some of the rituals and dances of her native faith.”

RENEE’S REVIEW of “ANTI-VIGILANTE AND THE RIPS IN TIME” by DIANE TEGARDEN
ANTI-VIGILANTE AND THE RIPS IN TIME is a fascinating science fiction novel where even in a world where life is lived vicariously through virtual reality, murder is commonplace and carried out with extreme emphasis on brutality.
It never fails to amaze me — the mind of the writers of science fiction, the terminology that is all their own, and a world created with such detail you think you are there.
This book is beautifully written about a place called Terrax (earth in the distant future). A world where human physical contact is impossible and pornography is an addiction, Murder a pastime and death just as horrible as it is in any reality.
For me the beauty of the book is the poetry and it is scattered very liberally throughout. All science fiction readers will enjoy this look at a world where the atmosphere is non-breathable and its population looks back in time at the mythology that is earth today.
A unique read by a very talented writer.
Author of “MURDER, MADNESS & LOVE”
I’ve had the pleasure of reading the first chapter of Diane Tegarden’s “Anti –Vigilante: Rips in Time”. Diane has ability to manipulate words to create images showing the lives of her unique and interesting characters being interrupted by the insanity of The Milliner, a sadistic murderer that skins the flesh off his victims’ faces. The visions she creates are both disturbing and intriguing at the same time. It is this technique in her writing skill that kept me on the edge of my seat reading to find out what happens next. I highly recommend reading Diane Tegarden’s book “Anti-Vigilante: Rips in Time” and read for yourself!”-Sept. 8, 2008
