Exodus Lost by S.C. Compton

S. C. Compton's "Exodus Lost" is a compelling look at the voyages of pre-Western American cultures across the Atlantic.

Compton, having studied these cultures for years, is well-versed on the subject, presenting a well-developed case for the voyages.

There is a variety of archeological evidence used to help the reader see the plausibility of the voyages.

Compton's studies allowed him to discover a variety of new things outside the topic of travel about  indigenous American cultures.

Compton also incorporates information about Biblical events into the book.

One of the strengths of the book is that it is so approachable.

Although Compton is an esteemed scholar, the book can be read by anyone, regardless of his or her background.

Another strength of the book is its visual aids (126 photos, maps, and engravings).

The book is in the history section, but it has enough real-life adventure to keep anyone interested.

Overall, "Exodus Lost" is a strong offering about a fascinating topic -- it is a must-read for anyone with a remote interest in history, especially that of Egypt and early America!

Killgrace and the Singular Situation


“Killgrace and the Singular Situation” is science fiction for the thinking person.

Part of a series of science fiction and historical stories called Killgrace, the novella revolves around a team of scientists who are trying to rescue planet-sized aliens from a black hole while aboard a spaceship.

The cast of characters, consisting mostly of scientists and space aviation personnel, are likeable and interesting, especially the two protagonists, Professor Susan Wells and the humanoid Cet Killgrace.

The plot is paced well, and the various problems the scientists must solve are realistic (from a scifi standpoint) and do not feel forced.

It is worth noting that this novella is firmly rooted in science.

Physics concepts, such as the Coriolis effect, are referenced and used to help the scientists come up with a solution for rescuing the gigantic aliens.

The novella’s basis in science and the elegant ways in which the scientists attempt to solve the problem make “Killgrace and the Singular Situation” a recommended read for any serious science fiction fan.
