Review by: Adonis Mann on June 20, 2015 :
"A.L.O.M. Episode One" is essentially the story of Vlad Kappel, an engineer working hand in hand with scientists and the United States government to create the very first functional time machine. Set in a time that is over a hundreds year from current day, technology has advanced at an amazing pace and with it the human understanding of time travel. Vlad is a quiet man of a conservative demeanor. All he really wants to do is three things; create the A.L.O.M, fly the A.L.O.M and indulge in episode after episode of Ancient Aliens, the television show.

When the unexpected happens, Vlad is confounded by the outcome. I won't say much more because this is a short story and I don't want to ruin it for the potential reader.

What I liked the most about this story was the fantastic plot and exceptional idea. You see, this isn't just your average time travel story--this is an ellipse in time at a grand scale.

You don't just have a person and a time machine, but an "insignificant, average" human being and his impact on all of human history.

A Loop In Time!

The author does an amazing job of seamlessly traversing from one end of the spectrum to the other.

It makes the think:

Could this be possible? Could this have truly happened, or will happen? Who is to say for sure, however it does leave one with a series of questions that arise due to the persuasive and plausible presentation of the story.

This is Episode One, which leads me to believe that the adventure has just begun. I cannot wait to read Episode Two and how ever many more come into fruition. It would be very fascinating to see where the adventure will lead.

For a story in a genre that I do not sway to very quickly—due to the nature of it—I felt that the writing had a balance of functionality, comprehensiveness and talent to keep the Sci-Fi Beginner entertained and "in the know" without bombarding them with tyrannical amounts of Technobabble.

I give "A.L.O.M Episode One" two thumbs up!

This is my kind of story! So much fun to read. I loved Vlad and his friend Win. I thought the whole sequence of the time machine in flight was wonderful. I couldn't pull myself away. There were some formatting and grammar issues. (SPOILER!!!) I thought it was a little TOO convenient that the captain died right before the official launch. Other than that, I really did like this story. It reminds me of the old Sci-Fi stories in the old pulp magazines. Correa definitely has a gift for story-telling.

Review by: Queen of Spades on Jan. 24, 2014 :
There are many different things I enjoy about A.L.O.M.

This is the type of read that anyone can enjoy--even if science fiction is not your primary go-to genre. Some parts you almost feel as if you are in science class, looking at the Discovery Channel, yet you can clearly understand the jargon and relate to the excitement that Vlad and the rest of the team are feeling as they go through the process of creating the machine.

In addition, A.L.O.M. has sprinkles of comedy. I'm sure all can relate to having a boss that really has no idea what goes on "at ground level" to being so preoccupied with the bottom line and issues "from a managerial perspective".

A.L.O.M. can easily stand on its own, but I would love to follow Vlad on his adventures. This could easily play out as a series or full fledged novel.

From conception to resolution, A.L.O.M. is a work of beauty and enjoyment. I highly recommend it.

I am a fan of short stories and this one takes you on a journey through time and space and not only physically, but mentally as well. in fiction and in life, one person's hard work can be taken away in the blink of a eye .... in this story it sets up a justified ending. Whether you like sci-fi or stories about aliens, this one is for you!

Review by: Andrea Houtsch on Jan. 08, 2014 :
A most enjoyable short sci-fi read, A.L.O.M. makes use of the growing debate over ancient history, the presence of aliens, and plausible time travel theories. Well written with engaging characters, A.L.O.M. is definitely worth the read and probably should be sold rather than a freebie.
