Stephanie Houdek is the author of the young adult novel Taming the Iris as well as a slew of science fiction short stories slowly being added to the Short Stories tab above. She lives in Wisconsin with her son and husband. When she’s not glued to her computer, she’s inhaling books about words, books about novels, books about publishing and a little bit of everything else: chick lit, horror, science fiction, fantasy, and the classics. She gravitates toward writing action and romance novels; sometimes both inside one cover, and science fiction short stories.

Tim (42) watched on the news an explosion (air burst) in KC. come to find out it was a large meteor had hit. 14 dead, 200 injured & lots of property damage. He was going fishing at Old Mill, MI. He also was going to look for fossils & other things. Something took 1 of his poles under, then he thought he might have found a meteorite. When he got back home he was going to send the samples to Professor Winston at Wash. U. The University was going to pay him $250,000.
Tim met/liked a neighbor in the apartment complex Tina (36) an attractive, recently divorced mother of 3, she shared custody with her ex Charlie. She worked at a restaurant & Tim was going to pay her double if she would go on vacation with him for 2 weeks. Tim received his direct deposit.
Tim & Tina were at a motel & she receives a call from Charlie & he receives a call from the Professor. Neither call was good news.
Cool book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written futuristic schifi short story (book). It was very easy to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. Quite a few twists/turns. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of interesting scenarios & a great host of characters. This could make a great futuristic schifi movie or TV series. No doubt in my mind a very easy rating of 5 stars for this book.
Thank you for the free book
