The Kaleidoscope Effect is a short, historical, science fiction novel of sweeping proportions. From the Iceman, a Copper Age hunter, to a disillusioned astronomer at the end of the Twentieth Century, if you've ever wondered what will happen to ordinary people when extraterrestrials arrive, follow Albert on his quest for the answer.
