Homo Cosmicus by Todor Bombov is a masterfully written science fiction adventure of epic proportions. The story begins in the night sky above Chile. Two soldiers are on sentry duty and they spot a strange illuminated craft. While they are trying to figure out what it is, it comes down closer and then hovers above their commander, Corporal Valdez. Suddenly he disappears and then appears five minutes later. The two beings tell them that they will be back. Corporal Valdez is trying desperately to figure out what happened to him. He claims that he was gone for five days, and has five days of unshaved stubble on his face to prove it. During the same night, there are more sightings. When Paulo Roberto is abducted, he meets the aliens that begin talking to him, answering questions, and teaching him about their ways with telepathic communication.
Mr. Bombov does a stellar job of taking this journey into an education for Paulo. The author's writing describes the events and history of our solar system, including the earth. His writing was able to captivate and transport me into a universe filled with unlimited possibilities, where time and space and distance are achieved at unbelievable speeds. Paulo learns that this peaceful race of advanced beings has created their society where hunger, taxes, and monetary systems don't exist. The pages of Homo Cosmicus just kept me enthralled throughout this flawlessly written novel. Todor Bombov's writing was surprisingly brilliant and could easily rival the works of Robert Heinlein and H.G. Wells. His characters were very well developed and the story kept me engaged. I was entertained on all levels and will keep my eyes peeled for more works by Bombov. Homo Cosmicus is by far one of the best, if not the best science fiction story that I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Bravo!
