I was once told, that to tell a lie successfully, you had to inject at least a modicum of the truth. The same applies to good fiction, basing the story in the real world, then adding fantasy to taste.
In Once Upon an Alien, MisguidedChild has done just that. You can see the ruins on Google Maps, but the fantasy is built around them with considerable skill. Good writing, great technical ability, and an unbounded imagination, make this story a wonderful read.
There are a few typos, but there aren't the hideous homophones that seem to be perpetrated by MisguidedChild's semi-literate countrymen. If you want sex, look elsewhere, there isn't even a decent romance, but there is a great story!
Read, and enjoy!
