About Robert Moons

Robert Moons is from the "Twilight Zone" generation. He's the guy observing the human race from the outside looking in. His stories often have twists and surprises, but by the end of the story, all the pieces should come together like a jigsaw puzzle, and hopefully it will leave the reader with a satisfying conclusion. He tries to avoid the usual overworked plots, looking instead for new creative ideas that he thinks are worth exploring. Plots such as an alien father reading a bedtime story to his son (Once Upon a Lightyear), or a metaphysical hitman killing the soul of Hitler (Lex Talionis). He does not restrict himself to any one genre, although most of his work would be in the speculative fiction category.

The science fiction action/adventure novel "XIN: THE VEILED GENOCIDES" is finished. Originally known as "The Chronicles of Z'va'Xin", a 12 part Sci-Fi serial.

Even with the technical errors the storyline was excellent. The end caught me by suprise, even with the battle clews.
A good quick read!

Review by: Francis W. Porretto on Dec. 04, 2011 :
This is clever and amusing. It could have been written somewhat better -- you mentioned Robert E. Howard as a writing icon, but his style went out sometime around 1910, and with good reason -- but you'll undoubtedly improve with practice.

A word of advice: Watch your homonyms! A world does NOT spin on its "access." Apart from that and a handful of similar errors, well done.
