    1 thought on “First World War (The Prometheus Saga)”

    1. It takes quite an imagination to place yourself in the time of prehistoric man, amid the vast, dangerous and open plains teaming with vicious predators; the great ice fields; and the harsh elements. Add to that mix, the viewpoint of an alien, partially self-aware of its mortality and purpose. Imagine wild tribes fighting each other over game and hunting territory and you have First World War by Ken Pelham. I enjoyed the detailed imagery that painted the battle scenes between primitive armies of [...]

    2. Sometimes we take for granted what it means to be a person. After all, on planet Earth, only humans have the qualities of personhood. Ken Pelham's "First World War" is a gripping tale that will entertain and make you think. It is an much a work of historical fiction as it is a reminder of the meaning of personhood.It is the Ice Age, 40,000 BC. Two species of human fight for survival against the elements. The world is only large enough for one species of human, and Homo Sapiens is hell-bent on er [...]

    3. "I like prehistoric stuff, what with the cavemen and all," author Ken Pelham tells Charles A. Cornell in a blog interview.Cornell, Pelham and other authors, a dozen in all, launched a collection of short stories about an alien AI probe sent to earth at the dawn of humanity. The "Prometheus" probe can morph into any human form, male or female. The stories can be read in any order, but personally, I'd start with "First World War" -- our Prometheus apparently is in his earliest incarnation, some 40 [...]

    4. This was an interesting story in The Prometheus Saga. The Prometheus character was discovering who he was. Instead of knowing his purpose he just knew he was drawn to humans and had instincts to study them but keep itself safe when found in dangerous situations. He also hears voices in times of trouble telling him what to do to save his body from death.There are different tribes of people in this story. The author did an awesome job of describing them. I could picture them as I read their descri [...]

    5. This short story installment in the Prometheus Saga takes us back to the dawn of humanity where one species of humanity dwindles, while another inevitably seizes control. The first world war is between the Cro-Magnon and Neanderthal, and the Prometheus probe has a first row seat in the form of a sympathetic Cro-Magnon named Bran.Author Ken Pelham masterfully paints his tragedy within the short story confines, depicting the conflict as the unavoidable rule of the strong overcoming the weak, somet [...]

    6. Very good and quick reading.Fascinating tale, with great characters, and set in an unusual time period. Well written, it pulled me right into it and kept me interested till the very end. The only thing I disliked was just a matter of personal taste, because when all is said and done everything made perfect sense.

    7. The battle for survival is on in this richly crafted short story in The Prometheus Saga. The alien probe who calls himself Bran encounters a woman, the product of two different species, and seeks to understand why the two species can't live in harmony. Pelham gives this prehistoric tale a gritty and realistic feel, with a touch of humanity in the least likely person--the probe itself.

    8. Nice simple story with appealing characters based on the scientific fact that several Homo species inhabited earth at the same time and mingled with each other.

    9. First World War is a fast-paced read with a surprising emotional depth. I really felt for Etaa the Ugly. Pelham's description is visceral and his story telling efficient and satisfying.

    10. And so it startsThis imaginative installment of The Prometheus Saga takes us to the very beginning of mankind. A time of violence. A time when being different was intolerable, and one group hated the other because of that difference. Sound familiar? Only Bran can see this is wrong, but he's helpless to change the minds of the warring people and can only watch and learn from the "advance" of early humanity.

    11. Thought-provoking story using onflict between two dominant species on Earth as its basis, except the species are neanderthal and cromagnon and th ebattle is set 40,000 years ago. Interestng concept, well executed by a great storyteller.
