Choice of Robots, by Kevin Gold

Waaaah - robots!, May 1, 2016

I have to stop reviewing the titles I love! Longer titles like this are more labours of love than commercial ventures and if we want to see more of them from Kevin Gold - who writes a seamless, broad and >original< narrative in Robots
- we need to read and review in their support.

In choice of robots I ended up helping humanity better itself with my robot creation made out of, yes . . . wood.

Why oh why I didn't see eye to eye with the department of Defence I'm not quite sure. . .
; )

Attack of the Clockwork Army, by Felicity Banks

Steampunk gem, May 1, 2016

Alright, I'm bias. I love steampunk and want to see more at it - this is a great story and it promotes something that I love - so I'm giving it 5 stars.

Read it, demand more of it!

As an aside, my love was taken - I spent whole minutes wallowing in the misery of unrequited love
. . . such is life : ) and I have respect for any author who is brave enough to depart from the 'yes every man/woman is available and sexually interested in you' automatic, that aspiring authors (like myself) gravitate to to garner cheap likes

Well done Felicity Banks

The Sea Eternal, by Lynnea Glasser

Lovely way to spend an afternoon, April 30, 2016

Really enjoyed The Sea Eternal : )

I thought it was very well written, it benefits from the really clear choicescript format, in parts SeaE was quite poetic, there was lots of freedom to be yourself, there was a city of glass, mermaids. . .

I recommend you give it a try!
