[ARC Review] – The Cruel Stars

by John Birmingham
Published on: August 20, 2019

To me, space opera’s are just so much fun. An adventure across an entire galaxy is just so entertaining because it allows you to imagine bigger than what reality is. But while I enjoyed this story, it did have a bumpy beginning for me.

[ARC Review] Star Child: Awakening – Book Review

The Zentoki Fables #1 by Petra Landon
Published on August 8, 2019

I was not ready for this book to be over.   I knew it was coming since I had been watching the percentage of book left on my tablet, but was still so sad when it did.  I love fun adventure stories and this one was so nicely done with great, extensive world building, characters that are interesting, likeable, and sympathetic, and a nice plot and story.

[ARC Review] Voyage to the Metal Moon – Book Review

by Michael Dahl
Illustrated by: Patricio Clary

Escape from Planet Alcatraz is a new series by Michael Dahl, with Voyage to the Metal Moon as the advanced review copy provided on Netgalley.  It can be best described as a graphic novel for middle grade or a graphic storybook as the illustrations tend to be a large focus of the book and so detailed-oriented they almost tell a story in themselves.

Watch for the Lights – Short Story Review

by KBrillWriting on WattPad

I can’t think of any genre better suited for short stories than science fiction.   The endless possibilities of where a story can go are only limited by what the author can think up.  However, I think my personal favorite type of science fiction short story is when there is something eerie and unexplained going on. Watch for the Lights is just one example of this genre and I absolutely loved it.

Gerald’s Mistake: An Accidental Cat-astrophe – Short Story Review

An Accidental Cat-astrophe Book 1 by T.M. Edwards
Published on: June 19, 2019

Poor Gerald wasn’t getting fed on time.  His owner, Frank, was just too absorbed in his work and was late – again.  And after all…Gerald did warn Frank not to be late again so this whole thing is really not his fault. 

Ever wonder what your cat is thinking when you forget to feed it?  Or what they might do should the end of the world come?  This short story gives you the chance to find out.

Bump Time Origin – Book Review

by Doug J. Cooper
Published on:  May 7, 2019

Is progress and improvement always good?  Maybe not when you’re working with artificial intelligence – especially when you make the AI sentient.  Or it possible that perhaps in their world they don’t have the movie 2001:  A Space Odyssey to tell them of all the dangers surrounding HAL…
