A nice quick read at bedtime to help you sleep. Unfortunately it felt as if I was reading something written for a high school creative writing class. It wasn't bad and being free meant it was priced right.

I'm a sucker for time travel stories. Though "Building God" isn't a time travel story, it does deal with many of the conventions and themes in a very new, unconventional way.

Jess Kuras has created a vivid near-future world where the population has to answer a question for itself - what would you rather: know the future and everything that will happen to you, or live in the present where you feel your free will can make a difference?

But the story isn't just philosophical. The fact that the "God Machine" sees an imminent future where earth's entire population ceases to exist makes the story a tense nail biter. It slowly builds to a "what will happen?" climax.

Jess Kuras has created a story with many different threads that will have you asking yourself some serious questions. It doesn't preach - it leaves the reader to answer them for him or herself. "Building God" had me thinking about the story long after I read it. I highly recommend it.

The idea of building a machine that can predict the future and how that might affect our free will, only for it to determine that there won't be a future pretty much from the moment you turn the machine on. Is the lack of a future truly predicted by the machine, or is the creation of the machine itself the reason the future does not exist?

This is one of the most interesting short stories I have ever read. It was well written and thought provoking and I can see why it was a first place winner. Well done Jess Kuras. I hope you write more stories like this.
