Editorial Reviews


The Last Day of Captain Lincoln is a 107 page novella that sets out with a very specific goal. To make you feel. It accomplishes it admirably. Well-written and poignant, the novella takes you through the last day of the 80 year old former starship captain. He knows it will be his last day, and he is determined to face it with dignity. At the same time, he is human and he rails against the idea of dying. It just proves that even when you know it's for a reason - even when you know it'll be an easy passing - man is not meant to go gentle into that good night.

I don't know what I was expecting when I opened up this book. A quick science fiction read about death in the future, probably.  Regardless, read a novella about an old man that brought me to near-tears more than once was not it. Captain Lincoln is so very human, and the observations the author makes are so very true that everything resonates within your soul. The fact that it's set on a space-ship, and you can totally understand the logistics behind his death, just add a touch of the surreal and the serious to the whole thing.

Overall, this is definitely a book I will go back to read more than once. I'm giving it a top rating for that fact. It's not the type of book you rave about, just because of the nature, but it's one you quietly recommend to those that you know would appreciate it.  I absolutely loved the end, adored the characters, and thought the whole thing was amazingly well-executed. Anyone who can make me feel something for an 80 year old man is doing something right.  I highly recommend you giving it a look.
