About Stephen Arseneault

I came to this planet fifty some odd years ago. After exiting my mother's portal, the doctor slapped me around until I started breathing the oxygen. I'll admit, at the time, I had no idea what I was doing or where I was. Being an infant Human, I was completely reliant on the responsible actions of others. It was a time that I have largely forgotten.

I reside in Central Florida with the wife and children. After thirty years in engineering, my time is now spent chronicling the adventures of fictitious heroes. They are off-world, fighting the good fight. For me? I'm stuck here on this planet in this feeble existence that we Humans are all forced to endure.

So, I ask you this... do you wish to escape the bonds of this surly planet we call Earth? Are you looking for a bit more adventure than what the grocery store has to offer? Do you worry about being enslaved by alien androids or six-eyed alien goats with lasers? Pew, pew, pew!

Yeah, that's what I thought. Asking yourself those questions and getting back an answer is the first hurdle to cross in the race to get off this world. Sounds like you are ready to venture out, to put this place behind you.

So crack open one of my books. Take to the heavens and let me shout this out to those who remain: "Watch out universe! Another Human is on the loose!"

Take care and I hope you have a great day!

Review by: Hannes Birnbacher on June 02, 2016 : (no rating)
f there exist Aliens and their spacecraft lands on Earth, what would they do? How Humans would react? Stephen Arseneault composed an extremely suspenseful story out of it, showing also the development of the protagonist, encountering the danger the aliens present to him ... and to mankind. I think you will not lay aside the story if you have a chance to read it all at once. This E-Book is good for three stars in my system ("considering purchasing sequel") but of Product Placement - there is not mentioned the manufacturer of the trousers, shirts, pens, eyeglasses, toilet drains, weapons of the heroes, but the aliens are forced to run because of the Hillerich and Bradsby S44 baseball bat of the Hero, therefore downgraded to 1 star. Download it anyway. I already purchased the sequel, "Sodium 2: Acopalypse", which has a very fair price.

Remark: In my system, five stars is reserved for the most important SF of world literature, e.g. "1984" from George Orwell, and four stars for those I consider all-time best, for example Michael Crichton or some novels from Larry Niven.
This leaves three stars for most of really good Indie SF, but as everybody else at Smashworts does rate a SF novel at five stars if he liked it, I was detoriating the average rating of Smashwords authors I like best! So I decided to change my previous reviews, one by one, and repost them without the smashwords rating. Watch out for my rating in the review text instead!

Review by: Jacques Antoine on April 07, 2015 :
I love this series! The aliens are scary, but also vulnerable, and we can prevail, because when it comes down to it, humans are pretty tough nuggets. It's creative, inventive, imaginative. I can't wait to try the AMP series and the Omega series. Keep 'em coming.
