Five Star Review on Amazon By misterc
This collection of interconnected short stories is so captivating. The stories span time and subject but have a very nice flow. It reminded me of Isaac Asimov and how he added the human element to science fiction. These stories are certainly not trapped in the sci-fi genre. They would be enjoyed by anyone who enjoys short stories. As I read I kept changing which story was my favorite until I finished. Then I realized the book as a whole was a true collection. The stories worked individually and collectively. Very impressive first(?) book by a promising author.
