Editorial Reviews

Review

An enjoyable read
"For the most part, I enjoyed this novel. I was skeptical at first when I was confronted with a paragraph musing about time and the endless possibilities. I almost wish the novel had just dived in with Steven as a little kid when the idea of a shield to protect the earth first came to him. I also wished for a little more of Steven's background and childhood as it would have given me more insight into his character, and more emotional connection to his siblings.
This is a relatively fast read, and the plot clips along at a pace that feels more like a short story. I will say that I called both "twists" by about page thirty, and both were correct. But aside from that, I was pleasantly surprised by the novel. The story was linear, but interesting. There was plenty of action and romance to suit anyone, and the plot was believable for a science-fiction novel. There was also plenty of conflict in the short span of 146 pages. 
Overall, this was an enjoyable read, and I would recommend it to science fiction fans looking for something quick to read."

Message of determination and belief in self
I really liked the premise of Maelstrom by Richard Paolinelli. I lovestories where a person is trying so hard to avoid one thing that theyactually cause it. This is a very interesting point to make and I am sohappy to see it in fiction. I also love the idea that the same man gets a chance at redemption, redeeming himself for the mistake that he made. I think this story says something about human strength, even aftermillions of people have died. Even after all hope seems lost. Even if we are the only person left on the face of the Earth, we will continue tofight because we don't know what else to do. What else is there? That is exactly what this story is all about and I appreciate the message itsends about determination and belief in one's self, no matter if you are projected into the future and see the Earth's destruction.

About the Author

Born in Turlock, California in 1964, Richard began his writing career as a freelance writer in 1984 in Odessa, TX and gained his first fiction credit serving as the lead writer for the first two issues of the Elite Comics sci-fi/fantasy series, Seadragon. In 1991 Richard began his sports writing career at the Gallup Independent before moving on to work for the Modesto Bee, Turlock Journal, Merced Sun-Star, Tracy Press, San Mateo County Times and the San Francisco Examiner. He also served as an editor and photographer with some of the newspapers. He also wrote for several online publications. In 2013, Richard retired as a sportswriter and decided to return to his fiction writing roots. He released two short stories - The Invited and Legacy of Death - as well as a full-length sci-fi novel, Maelstrom. In 2015, Richard completed nearly two years of research and interviews and published, From The Fields: A History of Prep Football in Turlock, California, chronically 95 years of high school football in his hometown. One month later, his first traditionally published novel, Reservations, was released by Oak Tree Press. In 2016, Richard was one of a dozen authors selected to participate in, Beyond Watson, an anthology of original Sherlock Holmes stories. Betrayals, the sequel to Reservations, is slated for release in the fall. The remaining two books in the Jack Del Rio series will follow Reservations and Betrayals in 2017 & 2018.
