Jay Martel has created an intricately woven tale of science fiction, comedy, and a sort of "Hollywood Insider" type of story. The novel involves a down on his luck screenwriter Perry Bunt who has sunk to the lowest level conceivable. That of being a teacher of the craft he once made his living in; screenwriting. He still holds fast to many of his ideals and when he decides to stop fighting against the ocean of crappy writing he is drowning in, he comes across the main thrust of this book. That we, all the inhabitants of earth, are all merely players on a once hugely successful network within the Galaxy Entertainment lineup. Perry then finds out that we are being cancelled.
The author of this novel has worked in the entertainment industry for many years and is a successful comedy writer. He brings his expertise to this deftly woven tale of blended genres, realism, comedy, science fiction, and satire. The novel read like that of an episodic show at times, with each chapter feeling like its own mini episode. The novel came together to create what amounts to a complete series of television. The writing was exceptional, and you could tell once you started reading this book, that you were in for a great ride, and one would hope that this is the first of many novels by this talented writer.
This book will make you think--about today as well as about the science-fiction future--but also keeps you turning pages as the clever story unwinds.

This was only a good read for about 5 chapters. Too many twists and turns that were just silly. And sometimes as a reader you just want to slap some characters.Published 2 months ago by P. J. Dawkins
Satirical sendup of Hollywood inanity, alien observation, and military paranoia.
