From a reader's post on Amazon.com:
Interesting, Classic sci-fi story,
sci-fi... I finished it at three in the morning having
read this "first contact event" story that made me think of both Bradbury
and Heinlin. We can just have fun reading this
as we solve our problems by out adapting a more powerful foe. First contact
is either the sweet eating "ET" or someone
like the creatures in the hive. A good story with hope and heroes.

The Hive is hard science fiction with a strong romantic sub plot 366 pages
Retail Price: $16.95
"Red Moon" is captivating. I found myself reading it in very short order because I couldn't bear to stop reading. Although the action is almost nonstop, the characters are very well developed. With a background as fighter pilot, engineer, physician, and astronaut, I am sensitive to the point of loss of interest in stories that erroneously portray those professions and it is this quality that frequently turns me off to science fiction works. That was not a problem with "Red Moon." To the contrary, a great strength of the book is that, while fiction, it is very believable. The book is also timely. It is obvious at the time of this writing that the Chinese are serious about becoming major players in space. Their exploits of the past few years and their apparent plans for the future leave no doubt that the intent is to compete with and ultimately exceed the capabilities of the United States in human spaceflight. I recommend "Red Moon" without reservation. It is well-researched and well-written. The book should hold the attention of even the most jaded reader.
