This book is, shall we say "wildly eclectic," ranging from Flash-Fiction (300-1000 generally words) that often describe a single scene or narrative to works of traditional shot-story length and the stories are not all what could be considered sci-fi, per se. That is not a critique by any means.
The problem with the work is that, save for 3 or four, they fail in terms of story telling and objective, humor, or philosophy. A number have a long, long build-up -- almost the point of tedium -- which builds expectation and a wrap-up that is so fast a tortoise would miss it if he blinked. It leaves the reader with the same felling of boarding a roller-coaster, riding way, way up into the sky only to crest the top and...find it was time to get off. In some cases, the old saw of "show, don't tell" is followed only pro forma in that a character, rather than narrator, makes a one-paragraph explanation of the philosophical point of the story.
About half of the stories felt more like sketches and ideas jotted down on the run with the intent to come back to later or perhaps partial drafts. Some of them tried to make a point and belabored it to the point of irritation, or sophomoric toilet humor, which is a shame because the point could have been easily and successfully made in a far smaller space.Read more ›
