ABOUT Patrick Stutzman

Patrick Stutzman
"I liked science fiction before it was cool."

The above statement is true with Patrick. He has always loved science fiction, being heavily influenced by Star Trek and Star Wars as a child. He read classic science fiction by authors such as Douglas Adams and Frank Herb More...


Earth has finally sent a colony to the moon where Anna has been stranded, bringing with it hope of rescue. Although some are not quick to trust her, others welcome her with open arms, and she finds an unlikely friendship in a young colonist named Jason.

As Anna teaches the settlers to survive, the looming threat of the aliens' return casts a dark, foreboding shadow over the colony. Can she earn the colonists' trust and prepare them in time for first contact?

"Just picked this up. Read it. Loved it. If you're a fan of Anna Foster, Patrick Stutzman or both, Alone in The Crowd is a satisfying third instalment to what's been an entertaining series. It's been an interesting trip so far. Anna's journeys have taken her from Earth to a remote mining station at the edge of space, to marooning her on an alien moon. Let's face it. Anna's been through the wringer. But Patrick Stutzman isn't done with her yet - and that's a good thing, because it's always fun to see what trouble Anna's going to get into next, and how the hell she's going to get out of it.

Seeing Anna having to deal with a fresh batch of rookie colonists (in this third book) provides a dramatic and fresh shift for one of the more original indy-series out there."
