Veterinarian Andrew Foreman hadn't wanted to go to Mars in the first place. But somebody had to look after Monkley the GenMoP, the genetically modified primate. Foreman had always regarded space travel as a dangerous business, but he had no idea just how dangerous.

About Gary Weston

Hello again. As you know, I'm always up to something new. For now I'm on a space opera serial, called Davron. Just my usual bit of fun. Good guys, bad guys, and aliens who could be either or. It will probably be in about 5 or 6 parts, about 10,000 words each. Three parts out already and more to come. It is FREE for the series, then I'll probably make a single book out of it, if it has proved popular. We shall see.
I've also been adding some of my short stories and novellas to a site called booktrack.com.

And what is this about, Gary? I hear you ask. Well. Imagine ebooks with sound effects. Background music, ambiance, and sound effects like doors slamming, or cars driving off. It could be the next best thing. Some of my little horrors are proving popular on there, such as Character Stains. Think it's a little bit radical? Go check it out. There are some classics on there, such as Sherlock Holmes, etc. It is all FREE at the moment.
I have also created 10 audiobooks by narrating my ebooks. Some, like the All Mixed Up series, have several stories in one book. 1 to 4 and 5 to 8. If you would like to "Hear" Detective Senior Morris and the team tell the stories you'll find hyperlinks in the ebooks to take you straight there. Other audiobooks are Last Flight For Craggy. The Amazing Abbey Jones, Starlight Army and many others all at distribly.com. They are in MP4B format, ok for apple and others smart phone devices and free samples are available to try out. A free version of Starlight Army is available for a short time. Hope you like them. Gary

From the moment Andrew Foreman arrives on Mars, nothing is as he assumed. A well-plotted tale that leaves the door open for more, which I appreciated, as Foreman and Monkley grew on me.

A very entertaining and amusing read that I went through on a nice Saturday morning. I agree with some of the other reviews that it has a "written for the teenage sci-fi fan" market like some of the Juveniles (I believe they were called) from around the 50s.

As for the plot, the main character is a veteranarian and caretaker of a genetically modified chimpanzee (possibly a distant ancestor of Fiben Bolger? 8^) who gets stranded on Mars and is awaiting rescue. Nothing earthnshattering or groundbreaking, just a simple, enjoyable read.

My only gripe is that the ending seems kinda rushed, but that's a very minor nitpick. I'll certainly be purchasing the follow-ups, and investigating some more of Gary Weston's writing

I loved it. I thought it was a great read for all ages and it made me laugh in spots. This is a writer I will be following and encouraging my friends to read.

Review by: David H. Keith on March 11, 2012 : star star star
A good yarn, this, although probably more interesting to the middle school set than to adults. Weston keeps the simple plot on line and writes in an easy-to-read style. Having read Heinlein, Azimov, and Bradbury in my youth and grown up with Star Trek, this isn't exactly my cup of tea, but I recommend it to younger teenagers.
