More About the Author
Praise from Reviewers:
"As engrossing and brief and clever as a Twilight Zone episode, Fulda's story hooks your attention from the first sentence and stays with you long past the startling, yet fitting, end." -- Tangent Online
"The Breath of Heaven -- essentially a retelling of the HAL 9000 story, but with a very different outcome -- with its intricate examination of directives was a quite plausible updating of the classic three laws of robotics, and in some ways outshone both Asimov and Clarke in the way the story unfolded." -- Pearson Moore, Sift Book Reviews
"Movement is an award-caliber story, and clearly a major breakthrough in the career of Nancy Fulda." -- Aaron Hughes, Fantastic Reviews Blog

Overall, a great short story that is both thought-provoking and satisfying.
Kyle eventually meets a Dr. Sorenson who claims to have a cure for Kyle's disease. This is not a tried and true medical procedure that is in use, but an experimental one and has not been approved for use in humans. Dr. Sorenson has used this only on laboratory mice and rats. He and Kyle agree to go ahead with the treatment.
I felt very bad for Kyle in this story and especially the ending which was so abrupt that I didn't like it. I didn't see that particular ending coming, so I was a bit surprised. The story is well-written, though, and the science is believable. It sounds convincing to a non-scientist at least. It's short and can be read in ten minutes or so, and has good entertainment value.
Without having a spoiler, I can tell you this: the author does a good job of quickly grabbing your attention, and is able to get you to visualize the various scenes / scenarios of a twisted scientist conducting rogue research. The ending was a little different and while not a serious or "weighty" subject matter for a short story it served its purpose: a short and enjoyable read.
