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!
