Pacific Book Review

I knew from the start I needed to fasten my mental seat belt when I began Homo Cosmiens...

So unfolded the storyline by David Millett; expertly embellished with his extraordinary use of vocabulary, vernacular, and vision...

This book is about as original a work as I have experienced...
