Retirement. Publishers, thank you for the many years of reading pleasure you gave me, but all good things must come to an end. Due to failing eyesight I am forced to retire. I can no longer review your books, and any that you send will be donated to the local library, unread. Do not send any more. I can only read for a couple hours every day, and this does not allow me to finish a book in reasonable time. I will be devoting time to my own books from now on, and reading on a personal level. Books that interest me. I prefer paperbacks and hardbacks, not eBooks. My eyesight has been failing the last few years, and I cannot handle hundreds of review books any more. My books are still available for review. Anyone interested in reviewing any of them, they are found in the Link to Tom’s Books On Amazon. Contact me for pdf copies at

When four alien visitors arrive on Earth and disappear into the cornfields of Indiana, it is Stewart Faulkner’s job to find them. Who they are, where they’re headed, and what’s important enough to make them jump from a moving spaceship are all questions that Stewart must uncover. And he will have to do it all while 1) training a new team member named Mindy—who is developing a crush on him; 2) flying under the radar of his boss to make sure he’s not removed from the case; and 3) staying one step ahead of a government agent named Karl Bruner, who is determined to expose the presence of aliens on Earth. As Stewart unravels the layers of this mystery, he discovers that these aliens are connected to his own past in ways he never would have guessed. “Trespassers” should appeal to literature & fiction fans, as well as fans of action & adventure. It includes both men's adventure and women’s adventure. The book is appropriate for teen & young adult readers, as well as new adult & college, especially those interested in humor, dark humor, and satire. Fantasy fans will also enjoy this read, which dabbles a bit in the realm of speculative science & scientists, even dipping slightly into urban legends, for a well rounded entertainment experience.

“A Satirical Look At Alien Visitation & Abduction.”

Aliens are human, and have been coming to Earth for a long time. Although the universe may be inhabited by humans they are as different as birds are on Earth. For instance a peacock and sparrow are both birds, but look how different they are to one another. The government has two highly funded agencies assigned to the problem of aliens: The Alien Research Agency, run by Karl Brunner, who is trying to prove that aliens exist. The other agency is the Limestone Deposit Survey Group, their A-team, or in the case rated Fire for the highest, consist of Stewart Faulkner, Mindy Kemp, Gregory Webster, and New Guy (military rifleman). They know aliens exist. In fact aliens are supposed to check in with them when they visit earth to be immunized against our biological bugs. Just like we receive immunizations when visiting other countries. But some aliens sneak in, abduct a human, and make their own vaccines. That’s where Stewart and his team come in.

Now an alien craft has been detected about to abduct an earthling, but Stewart has set himself up as the victim, and takes over the ship. But while he’s moving the spaceship to a secret location four aliens he had overlooked drop from the craft to the surface, and become illegal trespassers. These include Dexim, Lynting, Tobi, and Jin; they are on a secret mission, possibly to find a fifth alien.

This was a fun read, though you won’t find much action or tension. Things are sort of mellow as the aliens play cat and mouse with government teams chasing them. I thought the aliens were a bit too human, not only in looks but feelings, and would have preferred seeing a little more mystery and conflict between everyone. This is definitely a different kind of science fiction tale than what one expects with the subject matter. Readers who liked The Hitchhicker’s Guide To The Galaxy should find this one similar in context. Highly recommended.
