A tale of high-tech subterfuge and deceit played out on the world's stage...chock full of rockets, launches, harrowing landings, and spacewalks that all space geeks will love. An enjoyable, entertaining ride. Universe Today
Paul Gillebaard has a commanding knowledge of aerospace technology and sprinkles Space Hoax with credible tech. If you enjoyed Moon Hoax, you will be pleased with its sequel. Books R 4 US
Just brilliant! Suspense up to the end, which I enjoyed tremendously. Thinking about the possibility of this happening in real life...chilling!
Paul Gillebaard is a great story teller. Moon Hoax had excitement, entertainment and a couple of good laughs. How does someone write a story like this? The Chinese plot was dazzling and it almost worked, had it not been for this kind of James Bond in space and his hilariously brilliant Russian sidekick. And in the end, even the Taikonauts get to save face. I don't recall any other completely fictional story around current or previous space programs. Everything before (like The Right Stuff or Apollo 13) was based on true events. Gillebaard may have created a totally new genre here. A small step for a writer, but a giant leap for fiction!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Moon Hoax after picking it up at Costco complete with Gillebaard's signature. I couldn't put it down! As far as I'm concerned, Gillebaard has written a WINNER. Moon Hoax WILL make an outstanding movie. I'm positive Hollywood will pick it up when they become aware of such a great story. It was great meeting and talking with such a talented writer.

Space junkies will get a kick out of the new novel Moon Hoax, a recommended clever novel.

Gillebaard writes with enthusiasm, humor, empathy, and the precision of a keen mind. He captures the heart and soul of mankind's moon landings having grown up only a mile from the Johnson Space Center when they were controlled. His authentic technical detail is woven into an intriguing, complex plot, which is dynamically driven by motivated, complex characters. Moon Hoax is a first rate space adventure that pulls you forward right to the last page--an impressive achievement for any author yet even more so for a first-time novelist.
Ed Gibson - NASA Astronaut, Skylab 3
With a plot idea so audacious that you have to keep reading to see how he pulls it off, Gillebaard rockets the reader through an all-out-fun story. There are enough clever details in USSR Hoax from the real Apollo era, it’s clear the author had some frank conversations with the actual Apollo astronauts. Entertaining, engrossing, and recommended. Francis French, author, In The Shadow of the Moon
Gene Cernan - Apollo 17 Commander
Paul Gillebaard keeps the action going with this gripping read, using fiction meshed with the reality of our space program to inspire new generations.
Mark Larson - Chairman, San Diego Air and Space Museum
Paul Gillebaard again puts his creative talents into creating a unique, fresh spin on the space race of the 60's, including my Gemini mission, providing for an entertaining ride through history. USSR Hoax is fun fiction, but inspired by some actual events. No doubt this book will help new generations to embrace the future through real world space exploration. Gene Cernan - Gemini 9, Apollo 10, Apollo 17
The characters are as real as the ones that launched from Cape Canaveral. With technical detail woven into this novel of intrigue, it is compelling to the last page. Senior Life Newspaper
