Format: Paperback
J Alan Erwine's "Seedlings on a Solar Wind" is a small book, but loaded with good stories. I've enjoyed reading all of them.

I like short stories. I like the fast setup and the slamming resolution. J's stories fulfill my desire for the quick, fast, slap you in the face plots.

Seedlings has some downsides, but they're not severe. I noticed a few typos here and there. Well, what can I say? I'm a long-time tech writer and typos tend to show on the page in neon to my eye. I've seen them in the high-paid authors books, so I'll not mark J down on that account.

Favorites? A Chronic Mistake, although J admits he doesn't write much cyberpunk, he might consider doing more. The story kept me going to the end.

I think the book is worth the price. I hope everybody will also take a look at J's novels. I'm money-challenged, so I've got to spend wisely, but I sure would includ J's books in my "want" list.
