Baby Wipes

Rated 3.50/5 based on 4 reviews
William, a Chicago suburbanite living in the not-so-far future, suddenly finds himself dead. When he recovers, Chicago is gone, leaving only open prairie and an alien offering him a baby wipe to clean his face.
This would be hard enough for anyone to deal with, but there's much more...

About S. A. Barton

S. A. Barton was, up until the end of the summer of '12, one of the legion of retail workers struggling to keep his big dreams alive in an often uncooperative world.

Now... full time author and grad school student. The days are full of writing, for one reason or the other. It's the end of keeping dreams on life support and the beginning of them waking from a coma.

Next project: learning to fly.

Review by: James Jenkins on Dec. 15, 2013 :
If you don't pay attention when reading this story you might miss some key points (like how the earth was destroyed).

I found the concept of distribution of intelligence, interesting and fresh. Well written other then being a little bumpy at the start flows well. The bumpy start, might have been written differently, but it does come together after you have read the whole story.

Worth reading twice.

Well, I thought it was fun. Sure there are some loose ends, and yes, William does take everything a little too much in stride, but what the hey, I liked it.

Okayyyyyy. Interesting tale and Barton seems to be a disciplined writer - both factors much to the good. I must have become jaded, though, because it left me confused. For instance, what exactly happened to kill William and all the others? Who exactly was the alien? Metaphor for God? World savior? Interstellar tourist or trerasure hunter? Why wasn't William the least bit curious about he got to be dead? If it were me, I'd be demanding a few explanations before going trotting off after an oddly-dressed ET - like where are we, *when* are we, what the hel happened. And, well, I quite frankly found the alien's reason for saving William a huge stretch.

Perhaps Barton should give a few more details, or expand this into a larger story. I found the premise interesting, but Barton's handling of it just left me frustrated and unsatisfied. I'd really like to know more of the story.

Three stars for trying - and for paying attention to the details of spelling, punctuation, and grammar.
