Oh…and finding a favorable review on Goodreads… Hopefully, fame, fortune, and fawning adulation aren’t much farther in the future. ;-)(less)

Good Ole Sci-Fi Story

Reminded me of sci-fi stories written in the 1950s, which I mean in a complimentary way…

Great story…brimming with potential plot twists and such. The author has laid a solid foundation for a series of Bannon works.
