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 : star star star star star
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!

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.
