TGIF: MEG, Aquarium From Hell

HA-FRONTALWe’ve covered the MEG series by author Steve Alten in the past in the context of the original book being turned into a movie.  For a refresher…The main The protagonist is Jonas Taylor a Navy deep sea diver working in the Marianas Trench. And guess what..its ‘top-secret’. He sees a megalodon that kills his buddies. And guess what…no one believes him. The plot twist is Jonas gives up diving and becomes a paleontologist to prove “Meg’s” existence. And guess what…Meg wrecks havoc. More people die and eventually Meg is killed with a submarine.  That’s just the first book!  There have been two more since.  Now a 4th, MEG: Hell’s Aquarium is coming out this summer.  Variance Publishing has released the below trailer for the book.  Apparently book readings are not enough any more.  If nothing else the trailer is amusing. The publisher has a contest going on where you can when a signed copy of MEG 5 and potentially become a character in it.

  1. Hell’s Aquarium was released back in May. I still haven’t gotten around to reading it, but the other books were fun, albeit somewhat ridiculous, reads.

  2. I’m sorry, but this series does not compare to the awesome, majestic, and totally accurate wondersomeness that is “Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus”. I mean, really.

  3. Sorry, Dr. M, but the contest ended yesterday. However, I’m happy to report that I made the cut (again) and will be a character in Meg 5 (in addition to already being a character in Meg 4!
