Alan Dean Foster - Catalyst
Catalyst, or Cat-a-lyst, stayed on the shelf for two years before I read it. I was reading quite a bit at the time. (You wouldn't be able to tell, now would you?)
Eager for adventure, movie star Jason Carter tags along on a treasure hunt in Peru where he and his friend discover a lost civilization intent on conquering the world
...are clearly not of this world...
Alan Dean Foster isn't exactly one of my favorites. There's good stuff out there, but, for whatever reason, his stories often feel a little superficial. Nevertheless this is a light story, and quite a readable adventure with some funny elements. Good stuff after, for example, an overdose of Hamilton 😄
