Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I wrote this book while I was writing "Divergence." After two sci-fi books, I wanted to see how well I could do with something more grounded in reality, without portals and raptors. I also wanted to pair things down, so that I could focus on less characters. With "Strays," I was able to do it for quite some time. Some of the concepts were inspired by movies that I'd seen as a kid. I'd be more specific, but that might give away this book's twist, a little. Ironically, a few months after I'd completed this book, a movie came out, which had some of the same ideas mixed into its plot. This kind of thing is unavoidable, especially since we're exposed to all of the same advertisements and television shows. Some overlap is to be expected. Movies aside, I really wanted this book to read like a "Twilight Zone" episode. So, forgiving any typos, I'd appreciate your feedback and reviews. Let me know what you thought of my strange journey into surrealistic reality.
