The Eternal Enemy by Christopher Pike

A Briefcase Full of Flesh.

Christopher Pike's 1993 book The Eternal Enemy proves to be VERY divisive for The Pikers. They're joined by podcaster Patrick R. McDonough on his virgin Pike voyage to talk through this wild ride of a book that begins with more information than anyone needs to know about VCRs and ends with a robot from the future with a briefcase full of flesh.

A VCR that could tape tomorrow's news.

Rela has just bought herself a new VCR. She sets the machine to tape a movie she plans to show at a party she is throwing. But instead of the movie she gets the news–tomorrow's news.

Soon Rela is regularly recording next week's news, even what is to happen in the far future. It's fun, at first, until she sees herself on the news. And learns that there is no future for her.

But can she change destiny?

Can Rela survive what is meant to be?

Patrick R. McDonough is a writer, reviewer, and podcaster. Producer/host of Dead Headspace; a co-host of Unburying the Dead; and editor of KillingTimeWithSilverShamrock.
