I have to admit, I'm a bit biased here, I've been reading Brad's stuff since his story Outbound first appeared in Analog Science Fiction and Fact a couple years ago. This story was also first published in Analog-back in December-as a cover story. And it deserved that spot. This story has many things to recommend it: A mysterious alien presence, a wonderfully developed ( and heartbreaking)father-daughter relationship and believable science. It's all there. If you're looking for a wonderful short science fiction read, do yourself a favor and buy Ray of Light.

I hadn't really made the connection between this story and Bradbury's "All Summer In A Day" until I read these reviews, but after re-reading this story, I do see similarities. But where All Summer's main character looks foraward to seeing the sun and doesn't get to, Torgersen writes of a people who have given up hope of ever seeing the sun again, and then see it in the end. I like the fact that youngsters who either have never seen the sun or are too young to remember are the ones rensponsible for giving humanity back their golden orb.
Most stories with kids as the heroes tend to be written a bit more shallow, to make the story accessible to children. But this story is written with all the emaotional depth and intelligence I've come to expect and enjoy from Torgersen's stories. Definately worth the purchase price.

What a great read. A story of sadness and hope in a world destroyed by an unknown alien race. Would love for Mr. Torgersen to write a sequel.

I liked the story, but somehow it rang hollow at the end. Needs more character inter-action. Lucille and the daughter are not well enough developed.

A beautifully-written glimpse into the troubles of a broken family set in a post-apocalyptic undersea world. Loved it. Torgersen has a knack for interesting characters in a science fiction world.
