As a child, Chris Hooper dreamed of monsters. But in deep space, he found only darkness and isolation. Then, on planet LV178, he and his fellow miners discovered a storm-scoured, sand-blasted hell - and trimonite, the hardest material known to man. When a shuttle crashes into the mining ship Marion, the miners learn that there was more than trimonite deep in the caverns. There was evil, hibernating and waiting for suitable prey.

Only downside is how they fix the issue of Ripleys memory, but I can forgive that.

The infection has begun, ravaging the American Southwest and leaving chaos in its wake. In this new world, there will be no last meal, no dying wish. The only reward left is to survive another day...

If you like the end of the world genre this is an ok fix. But you must allow for certain liberties from the author. No cars has radios that can play anything by music, and generally government and media is totally absent, and cities decay decades in days, for instance. So do not overthink, and it is enjoyable.

Berlin, Summer 2011. Adolf Hitler wakes up on a patch of open ground, alive and well. Things have changed – no Eva Braun, no Nazi party, no war. Hitler barely recognises his beloved Fatherland, filled with immigrants and run by a woman. People certainly recognise him, albeit as a flawless impersonator who refuses to break character. The unthinkable, the inevitable happens, and the ranting Hitler goes viral, becomes a YouTube star, gets his own T.V. show, and people begin to listen.

This is so good. You will crack up with laughter! Due to the seriousness of the subject matter it is also very suspenseful.

Only thing I would critize is a small factual mistake in the translator's afterword. I.G. Farben did not invent or produce Zyklon B. That was done by Degesch. Which as a subsidiary of Degussa, which was forced to sell stakes in the company to I.G. Farben (a classic anti trust measure in Germany). I. G. Farben was first on trial and got the hardest section of the blame. Anywho that is a minor point (written the translator).

Buy it now. You will not regret it!
