Once Upon an Alien by MisguidedChild

Author's Description:
This story is fiction, but not the facts. Information from Sumerian translations are true. Hindu texts of battles in space...true. Einstein's brain autopsy proved that he used more of his brain than other humans. How is that possible? How do men get flashes of genius, and why doesn't everyone function at that level of ability all the time? Why did the Dark Ages happen, and why does mankind seem to be sliding that direction again? This story is fiction, I hope.

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!
