on July 05, 2011 :
"Origin: Unknown" is an extraordinarily well-written, beautifully conceived work of sci-fi literature. Ms. Stachowiak has clearly done her homework- while never seeming to overtly ape other authors, her writing does reflect a passion for such luminaries as Lois McMaster Bujold, Robert Heinlen, Ray Bradbury, and others- and she has produced a tremendously enjoyable book. With an eye for both pace and nuance, "Origin:Unknown" has that ineffable, 'un-put-downable' quality shared by all great science fiction. This book comes highly recommended- both rip-roaring fun and thought-provoking exploration of the boundaries of the sci-fi genre, "Origin:Unknown: is well worth purchasing.
