Top Customer Reviews

Format: Kindle Edition
I should preface this by saying I'm not a big fan of short stories: I gravitate towards well-rounded characters and intense interactions, whereas short stories are normally (forgive the pun) fairly short on both. That said, I enjoyed this collection, probably more than I expected.

The settings vary from the more traditional horror stories à la Poe, to more SF-oriented ones. They also seem to improve as the collection goes on - I found the first story the weakest one, whereas the latter ones all have something interesting to say. As typical of the genre, the best stories use a fantastic setting to actually look at aspects of our society (memory, grief, family, growing old...), and these are some of the best stories in the collection. Sometimes the twist is surprising (Lifelines), sometimes it is slightly obvious (Economy of Scale), sometimes it is expected but still pretty interesting and appropriate (Customer Service). Some stories resonated with me, and some less so - but that is the beauty of a collection, where each segment is different.
The format of the short stories also meant they were perfect to download on my smart phone and read during several trips on the public transportation - and the very fluid and easy-to-read style definitely helped make those trips a lot less boring than they would have been.

In sum, a very interesting product from someone who is just starting out as a professional writer - and definitely something that makes me wish he will continue and deepen his commitment to SF.
