Editorial Reviews

Goodreads - Scottie Monument
Just finished this book. It was not at all what I thought it would be. The story line was was so imaginatively written, very interesting. I haven't read a sci-fi, fantasy book written in such a way to be so interesting. I really liked it. I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but it is obvious that a lot of thought went into the writing of this book. The story line and the history aspect of the story kept me involved in the story from the beginning and had some really fun and interesting twists.

    Interesting take on history

    This novel is more alternate history and maybe even fantasy than science fiction. I read the whole thing, and while slow at times, it was interesting. I thought the author had a creative imagination with some characters in human history who aren't really from Earth, like Amelia Earhart for instance. I thought it interesting that the our "Blue Screen of Death" is the "Green Screen of Horrors" in this and that it is from not so perfect copying of alien software, which humans use to bring down the computers of those same aliens later in the novel.

    Not recommended to anyone old enough to read.

    This book reads like a laundry list. I could not believe anyone would publish this stuff untill I looked to see who did.
