"A new voice in science fiction. Oak combines a multi-species future with a contemporary 'down home' flavor to create a gripping work of heartbreak and racial tension."
Janine A. Southard, author of the award-winning Hive Queen Saga
"I quite enjoyed getting to know the characters in this story. They were so different from anything that I've met before. I felt as if I actually knew them."
Jonel Boyko, Pure Jonel Reviews
"If you are a fan of sci-fi that is funny, has tension, AND makes you think, please pick up this book. It easily holds its own against Doug Adams' Hitchhikers Guide, and had me smiling the whole way through."
G. G. Silverman, author of Vegan Teenage Zombie Huntress
"[Class-M Exile] really does do what [Star] Trek does, in that it functions well in social commentary. If you like science fiction that really deals with social commentary...you need to check this book out! You need to put this author on your radar. "
SciFi Diner Podcast
"Oak hurls you thousands of years into the future and hits you at the core of your being. It's a fresh look at science fiction in a charming 'hillbilly' fashion... The plot has as much intrigue, suspense and action befitting a much larger work...a testament to Oak's skill at short fiction writing."
