ALIENS, SPACESHIPS AND THE OCCASIONAL LATTE by M. J. Wahl at first glance had the faint aroma of genius: A nice cover, an intriguing title, and an entertaining blurb.

What a ride!

I totally loved this book from start to finish! I love first contact books, and this one was really fun! I hope to see the relationships develop in a next book. I don’t drink coffee, but this made me appreciate the Interplanetary Java crowd! Well done, Mr. Wahl!
