“Great Sci-Fi and wonderful storytelling”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Oaxacanio
I’m glad this book showed up in my recommendations because I really enjoyed the entire collection. It has such a clear thread connecting each story that it reads more like a short novel than distinct stories. The author shows fantastic imagination and storytelling skills, and I will definitely be watching for more of his work.
