    Writers' inability to get facts correct and in need of an American editor

    As a big Stargate fan who would normally eat up anything pertaining to SG1, I found this book painful to read at times. Excellence can alway sbe found in the details, and I found that to be lacking in "Roswell."

    The writers kept on referring to Rhode Island as an actual island. Did the writers neglect to look at a map and fail to find Rhode Island as being a part of the lower 48 states? One would think that a decent editor would catch this bit.

    Secondly, they had Jack making a reference to conspiracy theories, namely the JFK assassination. However, they had Jack saying (paraphrasing here) that Daniel could swing by Houston and look for a second man on the grassy knoll. Now, as anyone with a passing familiarity of American history would know that JFK was killed in Dallas, not Houston. Again, where was their editor and couldn't the authors have at least looked it up on wiki at the very least.

    Finally, they made a claim that Roswell was a midwestern town. I live in a midwest town; the state of New Mexico is not in the midwest!

    I am really irritated by the messed up details in this book. The premise of the book is pretty decent, even though at points the story gets a bit confusing and muddled. However, the authors' lack of ability to fact check really takes one out of the story and I would recommend that anyone interested in this story save their money and just go watch the show on dvd. Not worth the money - which really disappoints.

    A reviewer

    I have read most of the Stargate SG-1 novels and this is the best by far. As you read it you can imagine it as well as if you were watching an episode of the series. This novel captures the essence of the characters as seen in the series, they are believable. The story deals with time travel, the alledged alien landing at Roswell in 1947 and ties in several other events from Earth's history into the story. The authors did a great job with this story they could have easily ruined the continuity with the time travel elements but tied everything together brilliantly. If you love everything about the tv show you will enjoy this book.
