VINCENT Review by Grandma Peachy

Science fiction has been one of my favorite genres since first discovering H.G. Wells and Jules Vern in grade school. Jonathan Meyer has captured a style reminiscent of those early science fiction writers woven into the modern age. Much of what was science fiction over a century ago is now reality but there is still much futuristic technology that an imaginative author can introduce. This author has found just such technology. Though the idea of miniaturization is not new it has not been a big part of the science fiction I’ve read in my lifetime. Artificially intelligent space ships have been around for decades. Where some authors give AI a tendency toward darker purposes Meyer does not. The independent nature and directed purpose of Vincent presents the Star Ship as a personality with pure and benevolent intentions.
The earth is at risk from a device from another world.  Vincent recruits a homeless man, who in turn recruits a museum guide for a mission to save Earth. Before their mission is complete a refugee joins their team.
I really enjoyed the plot and the characters behaved in a way that may or may not be expected, depending on how you think you’d react to finding a miniaturized space ship then being taken into it. I loved the descriptions of activities of the main character while he was miniaturized. Imagine trying to scale stairs when you’re the size of a mouse.
Great read. If it were a movie it would be PG or PG-13. I could recommend it to both young and old science fiction fans. Not too technical, yet believable.  Available in eBook, Paperback and Audio.
Happy Reading!

The Latest Review for Al Clark

I am thrilled with this review from Maria Clara Pimentel. Readers like her are the reason I write.

I am a Portuguese 72 years old and I have just discovered your books, beginning with Al Clark series. I became hooked since the first one. It is really old fashioned good (very good) science fiction.From the litterary point of view, it´s 4,5 in 5. From the point of view of imagination is 5/5. And it shows a very advanced social thinking, an universal and open mind frame. I detected one single mistake: at the end of book one, you put the captain organizing a thanksgiving celebration. You forgot that that is a celebration belonging only to the US and their History. And, as the colonists have been recruited all over the Earth, you should either have imagined an all new celebration or specified thanksgiving should celebrate, from then on, the settlement on Avalon. As for all the rest, your mindframe is absolutely open, universal, advanced. And you write pretty well. One of my daughters is a Portuguese and English teacher and I will tell her to introduce your books to students of the school. Congratulations!

Al Clark is not his given name. It is the name he borrowed from a faded placard fastened to the door of the room where he awoke. His past, along with his identity, have been ripped away, leaving him to begin a new life.

Where he is or how he got there is a puzzle he must leave for later. His most pressing priority is simple – he must first survive.

Super Doodle #1

When I don’t have it in me to write – I draw. It keeps the old brain focused. This is something I’ve been working on for about a week off and on. I call it a Super Doodle. Incorporating all the different elements into the drawing was fun, although taxing. My Sakura Micron pens allowed me to blend at least 26 unique components into the piece, with some areas that are three dimensional. To tell the truth, I’m pleased with the end result.

How many scenes, objects, and creatures can you locate?

Al Clark-Earth Audiobook is Live!

The final installment to the Al Clark Series is now available in eBook, Paperback, and Audio formats, as is all the books in the Al Clark Series. If your preference is listening to your Science Fiction, now you can hear the complete series through Amazon, Audible, and iTunes.

Seventy-four years after leaving Earth, Al Clark returns home after an extended absence. His wife has passed away, the kids have moved on, and he has decided to leave the colony they founded to discover his forgotten past.

To make the journey easier he arranged to sleep during the journey. It was a good plan, only that is not what happens.

Narrated by the acclaimed John McLoughlin, this tale will explain everything you wanted to know concerning the man called Al Clark.

 

Our Tiny Blue Dot

A view from space of the only known habitable planet. One would think we would appreciate the complexities and fragility of  our world. There have been cataclysmic events in the past. However, we weren’t around to affect the change.

Space Elevator

My current interest (when I’m not writing) is ink drawings, sometimes referred to as line drawings. I love the contrast.

Space elevators are only theoretical at this point in time, but in the future – who knows?

Sometimes it’s interesting to see what a black on white drawing looks like reversed. Which do you find most appealing?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Save the Elephants

The world is a complicated place. Science makes new discoveries daily, and still we know so little. Who can say that the extinction of elephants would not have an affect on us? I believe if there was no market for ivory the problem would be half solved.
