5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic mix of Joy, humor and sadness. February 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
A fantastic mix of sadness and joy. Made me laugh and made me cry.

So very well written. I adore these short stories. They all make you think, a few made me laugh and "A Goblet of Fifty-Three" made me cry. Oh so worth it.

More About the Author

J. Daniel Sawyer is a hat-wearing, obsessive-compulsive nutcase attempting to write his way out of the loony bin. He's the author of numerous fiction podcasts including Sculpting God, Down From Ten, and The Antithesis Progression (which earned him a spot as a 2009 Parsec Finalist). Lacking in personal qualities things that make for respectable character (such as the ability to sit still and shut up), he's forced to channel his lack of decorum into the fields of photography, a/v production, and writing for outfits like LinuxJournal and the occasional speculative fiction anthology.

When not working on his new secret steampunk fantasy adventure or getting into other mischief, he can be heard hosting the skeptical salon The Polyschizmatic Reprobates Hour, and as the narrator of Free Will, book two of The Antithesis Progression, both available through http://www.jdsawyer.net.
