I have to say that I'm disappointed. Thought this was an instructional manual. Now I'm $15.99 lighter and I still don't know how to moon people.

Moon People has reshaped my literary perceptions. After reading the heroic story of Captain David Braymer, 1st Science Officer of the space ship USS Lunar Base One, I feel as if I have been unbound from the restraints put in place by a dozen English teachers. "Amazing", I said to myself, when I realized the linguistic flexibility that comes from releasing character speech from its quotation marks. There is a certain joy that comes with exercising the freedom to end a sentence on any punctuation, even a comma. Question marks needn't be for interrogative statements! Must we bind every interjection to an exclamation point? Henceforth we shall be free to transpose homophones with the confidence that the reader will still get the point. Even chapters needn't be logical containers for portions of the story; why can't we start a new chapter in the middle of a conversation with two characters? Even the rules of spelling and capitalization serve only to bestow an unnecessary magniloquence when plain conversational writing will do. After reading this book, I scoff even at the concept of 'correct' word order.

But all this only addresses style and the substance of this book is in the plot. Our guide on this adventure, Dale M. Courtney takes us from the nuances of interpersonal relationships to the majesty of the stars themselves. Each important event is carefully explained, reiterated, repeated and said again, all without any bothersome detail. Approximations like "a good size" and "about seven feet" get across the point without wasting time. The brush strokes used to paint this story are certainly broad, like those of an impressionist sketching in the sunlight across their subject. In these broad brush strokes there is a certain efficiency. Our story takes place in the span of only a long weekend.

The truly astounding prose of this book seems eerily familiar to me. I think I wrote something like it when I was 13. The sentences. They just unfold like a slow-motion trainwreck! You can't avert your eyes, that's how awesome this book is! To think such writing is still possible today!

This is a book that needs to be read cover to cover by anyone who has ever said "It can't be that hard to write a book!"

For extended samples of this writers work check out the dozens of fake 5 star reviews. One big complaint this individual has about other fiction writers is that they don't write like people talk. From what I've seen of this writers dialogue he writes like people spoke in the movie "Idiocracy."

This is the crazy weirdo on American Idol performing "Pants on the Ground" except for being not at all catchy or entertaining. It could have been written by Nick Nolte on a drinking binge. The sole non-ironic reason for buying this book would be to see what was the most pitiful reason a tree ever died.

This "author" is clearly the William Heung of science Fiction. This is prose that not even a Big Bopper style airplane crash couldn't enhance the value of.

From the riveting opening paragraph, to the riveting dialog, to the riveting final events in the master peace: MOON PEOPLE will keep you on the edge of you're seat.

I first found this book in a used book store near the collage in my town. Once I started reading; I couldn't put it down!

It tells the riveting story of David Braymer who's a 45-year old Single man and he lives in Daytona Beach Florida. Then he falls in love with Cheral Baskel who owns a Restaurant where you can see the Shuttle launch real good. A Shuttle launch is coming up soon, on the 31st of the month.

Can you guess what day that is? Thats right its Halloween. NOW you can probably understand why everyone is SUSPICIOUS of the upcoming launch!!

Well I won't give away the story here but let's just say there is a bit of riveting adventure a bit of romance and a whole lot of space Travel including aliens and Shuttles and Moon Bases (including Moon Bases 1 and 2 and even 3). Now these are three huge Base stations. Not small one's. And that's what you will expect from moon People which is BIG adventure.

What I love most about this book is some of the aliens like the Powleens and how one thing leads to another and before you know it, it's all out space battle for the existince of Earth.

What will happen? Find out in Moon People and read it for yourself! Dale courtney has done a lot of riveting writing here and is an author who's time has come!

I think I may have misunderstood what this book was all about. I thought that the author was writing an instructional on how to MOON People. I was anxious to get started, you know, mooning people, so I didn't read the book. I just got myself down to the nearest intersection in downtown Pueblo and dropped trou.

I was arrested again.
