Overview

The man on the moon was dead. They called him Charlie. He had big eyes, abundant body hair and fairly long nostrils. His skeletal body was found clad in a bright red spacesuit, hidden in a rocky grave. They didn't know who he was, how he got there, or what had killed him. All they knew was that his corpse was 50,000 years old — and that meant that this man had somehow lived long before he ever could have existed!

A man in a spacesuit was found on the moon. This wouldn't be a problem, except he's not from Earth and has been there 50 thousand years. This was a good, well written story even if most of the 'twists' were quite obvious. It was interesting in concept, but the character development was a little lacking. It's kind of interesting seeing all these characters smoking when today's PC crowd has pretty much stamped it out (not saying it couldn't come back into fashion again, though). It is actually quite heavy on scientific method, which is refreshing. The eBook is formatted well with no obvious spelling or grammatical errors. Thanks to the Baen Free promotional CDs.
