Everyone's a writer at heart, whether it's an email to a friend or fully fledged book, we all love to express ourselves in one way or another. For me, writing is a way of exploring ideas, developing concepts. I grow as the characters in my books grow. I hope you enjoy them.

Wow that was quite the read and well done. Your after thoughts on alien life and why they would ever contact us is on track with my thoughts as well. However, it would not make for an exciting read! This was a well thought out concept and ideas of generation ships. Great job on imagining a type of first contact that is not benign.

Oh man, this was a good novella. I'm going to try for a spoiler-free review here, so wish me luck. To me, one of the highest compliments a reader can give to an author is that they want to read the book again. As *soon* as I was finished, I went back to the first page so I could start over. Granted, I only re-read the first ten pages or so, but I needed to doublecheck to make sure I didn't miss something. The ending was THAT good. In terms of the plot, the two main characters are trying to thwart an alien threat to their Generation Ship. That's really all I'm going to give you though - pick up the book and find out for yourself. I should also note that Cawdron's style - dark, hard-SF, Space Opera - is very reminiscent of Alastair Reynolds.
