Book description follows:
Mankind’s worst critic just landed on Earth. Fortunately, so did his owner.
Altinison Borahamen (Alt) along with his super-intelligent, shrewd, curmudgeon of a pet, Khan, decide to make their pit stop on Earth stand for something meaningful. Instead of just collecting some materials that they need to repair their navigation and communications system, they make a critical decision.
They decide it is time, finally, to make contact with humans.
Alt decides to write his story with brief input from Khan as they hide on Earth—a story that he believes will warm humankind up to the idea of in-the-flesh contact with aliens without making himself and Khan targets or disrupting life on Earth for the worse. He will try to gauge when humans are ready, and when they are, he and Khan will emerge.
Alt’s story illuminates the history of aliens on Earth, the mistakes humans have made and are making without preaching, the details about several different species of aliens including one dangerous species, what his home is like, and the technology that will launch the world not decades into the future, but centuries.
Unlike most sci-fi stories, his is a colorful and understandable tale of failures and triumphs, of science and emotion, and of brand new comedy shared between Alt, his species and his pet. You don't have to be a sci-fi enthusiast to enjoy this book! It has the "ET" element of humanity and understandability.
