I will admit, I was kind of immediately interested in not only the title, but the cover of this e-book peaked my curiosity as well. Having only ever read Ed Lee's Teratologis, I also went in to this book with caution, as that was ....well.....just crazy.

This book centers on a few interesting storylines and characters. You have a "crackpot" conspiracy writer, your high level government officials, and a young boy who has nightmares and headaches, and sees what he calls the stickmen. The conspiracies touch on everything from cover up, to alien abductions, to UFO crash sites.

Who is truly the crazy person? At what extent will the government go to protect secrets from the general public? How will 8 year old Danny deal with the Stickmen?

This e-book kept me wanting to know what happens next. It is a fast paced read, and a very good sci-fi - UFO/govt cover up type of story.

However..... and this is kind of a big issue - the formatting and proof-reading of the e-book format had many errors. Line spacing, repeating or omition of words, made this hard to read at times.

My rating is based on the story, not the formatting, as this was a very enjoyable read.
