Meet the Author

Robert Moons is from the "Twilight Zone" generation. He's the guy observing the human race from the outside looking in. His stories often have twists and surprises, but by the end of the story, all the pieces should come together like a jigsaw puzzle, and hopefully it will leave the reader with a satisfying conclusion. He tries to avoid the usual overworked plots, looking instead for new creative ideas that he thinks are worth exploring. Plots such as an alien father reading a bedtime story to his son (Once Upon a Lightyear), or a metaphysical hitman killing the soul of Hitler (Lex Talionis). He does not restrict himself to any one genre, although most of his work would be in the speculative fiction category. He is presently working on a sci-fi adventure novel (The XIN Chronicles) to be finished by early 2013.

It might be interesting to see this taken from a very short story into something longer with some character development.

Really. Really.?

Mr. Moons really needs to develop his craft much further that it is at this point if he ever expects to become a true author. One of the first rules of alien contact is that you never use human terms to describe alien technology.

It isn't long enough to make any sense
