Hughes the Rocket-“LAWL” Made me laugh out loud. This was a cute story about Emlyn Hughes (named after the footballer but no related) but may be related to me, jk. He became fascinated with the space program (smart little boy) He won a chance to go to space when he became older and his fellow spacemen were geekily funny. Then the tide turns, “Houston, we have a problem”. Oops
One Small Step-“Spaghettification” What is that? Read about John Francis Mitchell and crew explore the outreaches of space and run into, well, you know…spaghettification.
The Big Unchill-And then, you have Walter, looking for a job in the land from the future. Oh God! Walmart still exists! Yea, and JBB? Didn’t see that one coming. And bringing back the dead, is not a cool thing. Haha, loved this story.
The one I liked the most is 'The Big Unchill' despite it being a little irreverent at times! As one might expect, it does concern Cryogenics but the author goes into great detail concerning the time when 2117 bodies were thawed. Several LOL moments for me when the names of those frozen were unveiled. And, what happens in the next stage is also funny.
All in all, a most entertaining read and certainly will give the reader many moments of smiles and laughter.
These short stories will fling you from peculiar pillar to wonderful post, having much the same effect as the more expensive option of changing your name to Timothy Leary and ordering a pantechnicon of psychotropics from Harrods. For the same cost as six in-flight peanuts from Fly-If-You-Dare Holidays this chap will destroy planets for you, eviscerate Welsh future-history for you (yes indeed, Myffanwy), pull the wool from your eyes so that you can see little alien girls as the murderous swine that they are and, if you stick with him to the end, give you a “Mahatma uppercut” that your orthodontist will thank him for.
The writing is tight, the formatting is neat, the spelling is pure Home Counties, not faux-English foreign, and – in spite of the breadth of the “oh ye gods, he wouldn’t, would he?” of the subject matter - there is nothing in here to frighten your grandmother or to stop the hen slaying. I mean, to stop the hens laying. Splendid stuff. I commend this kindle to the world, and I recommend its liberal application.
