The New Guy In Moon Base Twelve

Rated 4.00/5 based on 4 reviews
They weren't exactly the crew the President had in mind when he announced his plan to build a permanent base on the moon so the Chinese wouldn't do it first, but there they were, a boring collection of peaceful, happy settlers who couldn't even get a decent reality TV show rating. Life was perfectly dull until the new guy arrived. Now if they could only find out who he was and where he'd come from More

About Tom Lichtenberg

I've written a lot of stories, and one thing I've learned is that stories have a life. They want to be read, and they're brought to life by readers. Readers give them meaning, give them substance and fulfill their destinies. Stories aren't picky about who reads them. They welcome everyone. Money means nothing to them - they don't care how much the reader paid and they equally don't care how much the author made. Stories want to live and they want to be a part of your life. I often think of them as like paper boats you place upon a stream. You never know where they'll end up!

"Author of curiously engaging novellas. His stories are not driven by action but by mood and metaphysics. His premises often begin with fairly standard, often vaguely science-fiction concepts, but he spins those concepts out into melancholy, thoughtful tales in which he explores the emotion and (often) dislocation that people feel when confronted by something outside their normal experience." - Devon Kappa

A fun book, I enjoyed the political sub plot in the background. Not sure how the characters did not come quickly come to the same conclusion I did (and they eventually did) about where the new guy came from.

This story is all about character and what wonderful characters they are! Even the New Guy shines in his own way. I was sad to see it end, though I like the way the central mystery of the story was handled. I hope Tom cooks up some more adventures for these plucky, and very Zen, colonists.

Review by: Douglas Daech on March 13, 2012 :
Tom Litchtenberg has a funny story in this little novel. I giggled to myself several times as I read through it. When a surprise visitor ends up in the moon base, it’s not only how the residents react to the visit that is funny, but the set up of the entire situation. Tom has a slanted view in this work of the future and the politics that govern it. From the race to beat the Chinese in building a moon base, that has no other reason to exist then getting there first, to the odd qualifications of the residents, it is obvious that a lot of pre-planning and thought went into the storyline. (Unless Tom actually thinks this wacky!) In a quirky way the story holds together and is plausible only because the characters fit into the setup so perfectly. I throughly enjoyed it!
