Publisher's Summary

What if a time traveler lived in a world where disrupting the timeline could destroy everything in the universe? Everything but himself?

Pilot X is Ambassador of the Alendans, a race with the ability to move through space and time as guardians of the timeline. Locked in ongoing conflict with the Sensaurians, an organic hive mind that can send messages in thought throughout its own history, and the Progons, a machine race who can communicate backwards in time, Pilot X finally manages to create peace among the three races. But when Pilot X discovers that a secret dimensional war fought in hidden parts of spacetime threatens the fabric of the universe itself, he faces unseen enemies and a deeper conspiracy, bringing him to the ultimate choice: erase the existence of all three races, including his own people, or to let the universe be destroyed.

    Story
    "Dr Who Esk jaunt through time and space"

    While it took a while to get into the style Tom Merritt used in this story, particularly with the repetition of the main characters name, once I had drawn a mental parallel between this character, and Dr Who, another time travelling jack of all trades, I was able to focus on the development of Pilot X. While I understand the importance of the naming structure, it would have been easier to digest if sometimes the name was shortened.

    The pacing of the story built up to a nice crescendo as it twisted and turned though time and space, and I think I might need to read it again to really grasp all the detail, but for a first effort, this story shows a lot of promise.

    In another comparison to Dr Who, one of my favourite characters in the story was Pilot X's ship, but you'll just have to read it to find out why.

    "Been waiting for this!"

    I've been looking forward to this release since it was announced! First of his books with an Audible version. Loved all of his other works.

    If you're on the fence to buy this, just do it, you won't regret it! <>

    "Wonderfully enjoyable story, well written."

    Pilot X takes you on a journey that will keep you engaged and lost in the story. I did at times struggle for a second to keep the thread clear in my head, but i few moments later I was back on track and emerssed again.

    Do listen for the deeper meanings as they are present and will be unveiled in due time.

    Narration is top notch and makes the book all that much better.

    "Love this rendition of space and time travel."

    Amazing writing style. I have already recommended this to friends and family. So many cool elements that I never thought of. Can't wait to see if there is another book coming soon.

    "Great Time Travel story"

    I like time travel stories in general and I really enjoyed way time the time travel works and is perceived by the characters in this book. I definitely recommend this book, especially if you enjoy the twists of time travel.

    "Great book."

    My only complaint is that it wasn't longer. It did feel a bit doctor who-ish at first, but once you get to know X and his world, it takes a different turn.

    Story
    "Progons.... I am in you!"

    A time travel sci Fi adventure that doesn't follow the tropes of time travel. If you need to create a damn paradox, to move the story along, then do it, and you can bet, Pilot-X will.

    "First Class Sci-Fi"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Pilot X to be better than the print version?

    dont own the print version


    What other book might you compare Pilot X to and why?

    The Expanse series


    What does Kevin T. Collins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    good narration


    Any additional comments?

    This is a solid Sci-Fi tale in the vein of Doctor Who
