    NOT kindle unlimited. Saw some 'bad' reviews, but I sat here thinking that they were bad because, okay some F bombs and some other mild cuss words but eh, whatever; but what got me is people saying it was basically irreligious so beyond irreverant, but everyone from Holy Rollers to politicians to comedians and even various faiths have went against which ever god and/or religion they professed to believe in and follow. Some of the most knowledgeable Scientists have been Athiests, Agnostics {what NOT kindle unlimited. Saw some 'bad' reviews, but I sat here thinking that they were bad because, okay some F bombs and some other mild cuss words but eh, whatever; but what got me is people saying it was basically irreligious so beyond irreverant, but everyone from Holy Rollers to politicians to comedians and even various faiths have went against which ever god and/or religion they professed to believe in and follow. Some of the most knowledgeable Scientists have been Athiests, Agnostics {what it used to mean, i.e. no particular faith} and/or Spiritual. When I see someone upset over someone 'dissing' religion, and in a SCI FI book, well it's beyond goofy, but just remember -- Judge not lest ye be judged. I can say that because it must be obvious to those people I am a 'heathen' btw. King James had the Bible 'made', leaving out what he didn't want in, even to leaving out whole chapters and peoples, so well.... We have had the Crusades, Inquisition, and more, all supposedly in the name of whatever god was being 'praised'...through murder and worse {yes there is worse}, so considering religions' track record on all that, I don't see how a science fiction book is going to damage whatever god you supposely {claim} to belive in. I thought the book was funny, and don't see what got those 1 or 2 people all freaked out, even to the point of NOT finishing reading BUT still reviewing, and I dont' think that should even be allowed by amazon or goodreads -- you don't read it all you should NOT be allowed to review it {all}, period. Besides, is your god so weak and ineffectual that wiping people's minds would mean they would never form relgion again...with an almighty...oh ye of little {NO} faith, but whatever. What if technology advances so fast that a military science fiction universe would be a death sentence? Simply put, we'd create a weapon that can destroy everything and some idiot would use it. Welcome to the universe after we finally conquer the urge to blow up everything. Think of it like this, 'Out there' the grownups are in charge, by necessity. But even a universe at peace, is still a very dangerous place. 22 years ago, a spaceship crashed on Earth Seven, a primitive 3 rated planet under contact quarantine. The boy who found the wreckage is now the man who will unite the planet under his rule. Allor heals the sick with alien technology. Allor will end the cult wars. His sister runs an informant network and collects the heads of his rivals. His mother has created a religion to worship him. Oh, dear! All planets in contact quarantine are called Earth and given a numerical designation. For example, you are on Earth Five. What? Don't act surprised. Look around. War, famine, poverty, ecological disasters, murderous mythologies, Trump? And no one comes to visit, not a single tourist? You’ve had plenty of clues. The History Department sends Koven Modi, a rookie Field Historian, to Earth Seven to investigate the use of comms technology on a planet with a medieval civilization. Koven is not the best person for the job, he's the only one left. Everyone else is out looking for missing Physics Professor Klept and his dog, who might just cause the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies to collide. Koven's goals are simple. He wants to avoid getting killed, avoid work as much as possible, and avoid getting dumped by Tanit, his girlfriend. Earth Seven is a story that challenges basic sci-fi assumptions and offers new alternatives. What started as simple thoughts, 'Why do they always ..., what if …,' resulted in Earth Seven, a small book of big ideas. An example? OK. 'Out there' we're all vegetarian. Why? Simple. How would you like being the most popular pizza topping in the galaxy? Yea, I didn't think so. What? Ohhhh, you believe pizza was created on Earth Five? Well that's delicious, but incorrect. Read Earth Seven now BEFORE your planet self-destructs (currently a 63.82% probability). Words your mother won't like? Definitely. Imaginary Sex? Of course. Satirical Viewpoints? Overwhelmingly. Warning for 'bad' words, imaginary sex, satire, irreligious irreverance MUST READ NOW!!!! Earth Seven: And the History Department at the University of Centrum Kath - a Science Fiction Satire (Book 1) Mortuis Luna: and the History Department at the University of Centrum Kath The Finite Void A Partial History of the Universe Earth Seven Mortuis Luna The Finite Void Now all three in one place.

    Humor in Science Fiction is hard to execute in a sustainable fashion. Allow me a quick demonstration: In the beginning of the universe, there was only God. And then, eventually, God got bored. Maybe that got a smirk from you, maybe not. For some, there's a setup and a punchline there. For others, it's a "ok, and?" For others still, there is a great confusion as to why any of those words were supposed to be interesting in the first place. That long setup is to point to the idea that when readers DO Humor in Science Fiction is hard to execute in a sustainable fashion. Allow me a quick demonstration: In the beginning of the universe, there was only God. And then, eventually, God got bored. Maybe that got a smirk from you, maybe not. For some, there's a setup and a punchline there. For others, it's a "ok, and?" For others still, there is a great confusion as to why any of those words were supposed to be interesting in the first place. That long setup is to point to the idea that when readers DO find a sustained humor in Science Fiction, say a Douglas Adams type, they try not to let go. I am sad to report that, while there are absolutely plenty of humorous elements in this book, they certainly did not all work together. Doing my best to avoid spoilers, I will say that the first 100 pages are, in a way, just like any other book - they are the setup section, during which many readers will decide whether the book is worth sticking with. The problem with the first 100 pages, for me, was that the tones of humor did not flow together. The shifts in tone are quite jarring, and at least at first, it is not entirely clear how much, if anything, the reader is intended to take seriously rather than humorously. All that written, this review is as long as it is because the book does settle down after those first 100 pages, and individual characters get more color. As that happens, the jokes per page quotient goes down, which helps. The result is that the remaining jokes fit the story better. During the first 100 pages, this book was going to be a 1-star DNF (did not finish). I am glad I stuck with it. The author earned back a bit of good will and even if the rest of the book is a bit predictable at times, it ends up being worth reading the rest.

    This book tries to be a lot of things and for the most part succeeds. The ideas drive the book along with likable characters like Allor and Kovan. This book worked for me so well (but perhaps I'm biased because I do have a degree in history so mixing history and science fiction is the peanut butter cup of fiction as far as I'm concerned) that I easily forgive the lack of polish in the story telling. It is quite readable and the 'bumps' in flow are swiftly passed. I've read many books by flawless This book tries to be a lot of things and for the most part succeeds.

I've read many books by flawless writers who did not have such a solid story to tell that's personal, theological, political, and interglobal. The ideas are big and interesting to me. I loved the dry humor although please don't look for ha ha funny in this book. Once I got pass the opening (sorry, but it starts in a very rough way), this book was a lot of fun to read--so much so that even with my 'nits' I still rate this at 5 stars.

    Science fiction story dealing with a man who found a crashed spaceship and used the technology he discovered to help and heal people and destroy those who oppressed them as well as the man sent to retrieve the technology by the History Dept at the University of Centrum Kath. While funny and insightful, it tends to wander away from the story arc along the way. I did like it, but had some difficulty staying focused and following all that was going on.

    I won this book in a giveaway on Goodreads. DNF at 17% I will admit one thing. I don't love Douglas Adams. But this just feels like a cheap knockoff. The story is almost nonexistent between the omnipresent asides to infodump. I think it is meant to be funny, but not of the jokes landed for me. Part of the problem may be that the author is trying to make a joke out of everything. I won this book in a giveaway on Goodreads. DNF at 17% I will admit one thing. I don't love Douglas Adams.

    Much of the cultural commentary about people, politics, and belief is insightful and funny. Unfortunately, it tends to go off on its own without a lot of relevance to the main story arc, which involves a guy on a technologically and culturally backward planet who discovers advanced tech in a crashed spaceship.

    Interesting sci-fi with new twists This story has the “old” older societies running things in the universe from the background idea. However there are some interesting twists with the “University” running things and the intrigue between the departments. Fun read, looking forward to the sequel.

    Pretty good. What if we found advanced technology? What would we do with it? Would we share it? Would we use it for power or money? This book makes you think about all the possibilities. Well worth the read.

    Satire is not a genre that I normally would pick up. However because I like the authors other books so much I thought that I would give this one read. Oddly, I liked it.

    Meandering read It was an experience similar to Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, but with an abrupt ending posing as a cliffhanger. Read at your own risk.

    Farcical trifling trash! What a waste of data, far too silly for me at any time or mood. I could not delete fast enough.

    Very juvenile. Seems to be written for 10 or 11 year old children. Sorry; not my cup of tea. Couldn’t get past the first few pages.

    This was a very different sci-fi story, and a rather funny one to boot.
