Well done Dr. Gunn.
Tom Grollman, MD
Always eager for an adventure, I quickly strapped myself into the Arean Explorer, ready to join the crew of Aeronauts on a three-year trip to Mars. Mystery is my favorite genre and Isaac Asimov has proved that Sci-Fi and Mystery make good bedfellows. In the novel, A Tale of Two Planets, Alain Gunn has done the same.
Before reading this novel, what I learned from the book cover was that the author is a retired military officer, a surgeon and medical school professor, and a scientist who enjoys scuba diving. I knew next-to-nothing about DNA, biospheres, MHC sequences, or vaccine production. I still found this tale fascinating.
Every scene contains tension or conflict that makes reading the next chapter necessary. The cast of characters was diverse, with distinct and essential roles that kept the plot active and steadily moving forward. Multiple settings were woven into a tapestry of events that culminated in a credible and satisfying climax.
Alain had an amazing amount of detail about how space explorers could actually survive on a different planet in such a way that it would be worth the trip. I'm getting to work on my biosphere.
Enjoy the adventure.
