Original ONGOING Comedy Sci-fi War and Military

Earths Engineers are a double-edged sword. They can fix or improve anything, but no sane Xeno Engineer will touch it if it carries the Human Altered warning..

A series of interconnected tales from our distant future. It's not a novel, most of the chapters are stand-alone.

Also thanks for the awards.

TL;DR: Ever heard of /r/HFY ? This is the standard example

This is the standard example of /r/HFY stories - it's a propagandistic human-centric light sci-fi novel/story. It's not perfect, but if you like the genre, you'll like this one.

This is not sophisticated science fiction.  It is closer to a comedy routine - but one with a fairly consistent punch line that somehow manages to land each and every time.  Not great literature, somewhat thin characterization, OP engineering powers for the entire human race ... but as funny as anything I've read lately.  A truly enjoyable ride if you're willing to go on it.

Such a fun start. Imagine all the Human Engineers as Mad Scientist Scottys.

A similar story that this reminds me of is Alan Dean Foster's "With Friends Like These" 

I am expecting a fun ride going forward.

Like it so far and I'm impressed.  I appreciate author warning about it not being a novel.  That said I won't pan the stories if it drops, etc. 

I hope jauthor can turn it into a novel though but can see how it is a tough task.  Good luck your doing great.

A little like We are Smol (sp?) story on RR but hopefully without that fate (it started great and funny and became more and more inconsistent til I stopped reading it)

This has made me laugh so much. Even though their are only two chapters. It is still a awesome enough read to start now. Though I will have to wait now. Sigh.

Funny and Entertaining, Can Be Hard to Follow

Reviewed at: It’s a human

Style:

Sometimes it's fun, sometimes it's more grim. Weapons in this series include planet busters, but the outcome of their use isn't completely grimdark.

There should definately be a way for the reader to more easily know when the P.O.V. shifts. It's confusing how two different, normal-looking paragraphs can be from two different perspectives.

 

Story:

There doesn't yet seem to be an overarching plotline. Admittedly, there are only four chapters right now, so this may change. At the moment, there is only a collection of short stories with some recurring characters.

 

Grammar:

Completely readable and understandable.

 

Characters:

The characters, for the most part, are organized by species stereotypes. The humans are all engineers and military experts, for example. Beyond that, there's only one or two defining traits with each character that the reader can use to differentiate them.

 

Conclusion:

I'd keep an eye on this one. Given some stylistic changes and character development, this has the potential to turn into a great series.

 If you are looking for a serious thriller, you are reading the wrong story. If you are looking for a fun sci-fi comedy romp, here it is!

Bookmark it and keep an eye on it, because it's a keeper.

It reminds of Deathworlders series.

Humanity reached the stars and instead of taking technology as they received it, they instead reverse engineered and researched everything, becoming even better than it's original creators.

Then, to share their technology with their allies, engineeres were placed on their ships to maintain their systems and protect their knowledge. Thus, on all ship systems they worked on, a sign would be visible "Human Altered".
