Editorial Reviews

Review

This was a rollicking good ride. From the first pages where I read that space aliens were listening to Chuck Berry, I realized that it wasn't going to be the run-of -the mill science fiction novel. I had a good time with this book. --Jeffrey Marks, author of "Intent to Sell", for Writer's Digest

"Soil" by Julie Kornegay
Drawing on elements of dark comedy and modern dysfunction, Kornegay’s novel is about the gravitational pull of one man’s apocalypse and the hope that maybe he can be reeled in from the brink. See more

Format: Paperback
On September 11, 2054 Ithran Nek-Hanan (aka Nick) of the planet Selrahc, crashed his space cruiser into a Florida field. In his new novel, Galactically Speaking, author Fred J. Klingenhagen tells the story of how and why Nek-Hanan was charged with Capital murder...and what Floridian Leddie Fenhadden learned about this extraterrestrial.
In a well-researched story and with a tongue-in-cheek writing style that is humorous as well as inventive, author Klingenhagen unfolds a story of life in the future, in the galaxies yet unknown to us, now. And, you will read, that life then is not altogether different from how we act, now.
Nick's mission to Earth is to determine whether the people of Earth are advanced enough to join the Galactic Association of Star Systems, ecologically, financially, socially and intellectually. And it's the Enforcement Department's mission to capture Nick and bring him back.
Thus the story unfolds, as do the wonderful characters that inhabit it, here and faraway. And these characters include the cats of Earth who are able to communicate with the extraterrestrials. That look of disdain you often see in a cat? Its real...they really do think of themselves as smarter than their human counterparts.
If you want to find out what happens in this page-turner, and how John F. Kennedy was involved (that's right, John F. Kennedy), read Galactically Speaking. In this reviewer's opinion, Fred Klingenhagen is the next Gene Roddenberry (but with a great sense of humor) and Galactically Speaking should be made into a major motion picture, its that good!

This was a really funny read. I hardly ever laugh out loud when I'm reading, but I did several times while reading "Galactically Speaking."

My cousin in America gave me this book for Christmas. I have to confess, I opened it early and read it already! I'm glad I did, because I am going to read it again before the holiday break is over! An intergalactic cat.. and it's not as preposterous as it sounds! I don't want to spoil anything in the plotline for you, but this is a funny read, and not just for sci-fi fans! (Or cat fans).

I've read a lot of science fiction, and I thought it was impossible for someone to come up with something that is completly unique in the genre. "Galactically Speaking" accomplishes this. There are characters - including a cat! - that are entirely believable. Way to go. I hope there is a sequel soon.

A friend got my this book,since I'm into JFK conspiracy theories.

While I enjoyed reading the book, I couldn't see how any of the plot tied in with the JFK assassination. I have to admit, it took my by surprise. And the theory isn't as crazy as some other theories I've heard!

"Galatically Speaking" reminded me of "Hitchiker's Guide To The Galaxy." Not the recent movie (which wasn't that good), but the older TV series and even the funnier radio series on NPR.

It's a funny book.

Galactically Speaking is the kind of novel that knocks you right off your chair. Fred starts right off letting you know who is in charge of the next few hours of your life. When you jump into this novel (feet first), you will have trouble putting it down. One of the other reviewers said that this reminded them of the Hitchhikers's Guide. I have to agree. Fred Klingenhagen has the right touch and sense of humor for this type of story. He is the American version of Douglass Addams. Great story, Fred. This is the kind of story that I wish I could write!
