I don’t know about you, but I seriously hate it when I pick up a book and after I’m a chapter or even a paragraph or two in it, I just can’t put it down.
Well, the science fiction tale titled Little Green Men, by Peter Cawdron is just that kind of book.
Sneaking extra work breaks, staying up way too late at night, and what ever other addictive mannerisms you could think of, I pulled off to get through this short story.
Little Green Men is about first contact and how humans and the local residents deal with the situation and how to … well, I don’t want to give up a lot. It’s a short story. Saying too much is crazy.
Peter’s writing was inspired by the works of Philip K. Dick, and brings a sense of action and mystery.
It’s non-stop page-turner, one after the other.
The story starts out following two men on a planet survey, in their space suits. Looking for specific minerals and the like, for planetary mining. One of the men took note of something special and ventures forth to explore it. …
Things happen quickly and the pacing of events in the story is non-stop, and evenly distributed throughout. (Much to my chagrin!)
Will you see the end coming? Only if you cheat and look it up. If you read the story in a good, honest, experience-filled reading, you’ll love how things develop and the plot turns out.
If you like a great quick sci-fi read, filled with a complex story yet easy-to-embrace set of characters and events, this is a read I recommend.
And if you like this, I am pretty sure you’ll like some of Peter’s other work.
