Jonas Samuelle awoke in an Arizona vineyard several years ago to find that he had no memory, a bleeding head-wound, a relentless authorial drive, and a shotgun leveled at him. Some of these issues have yet to be remedied.

The moment Jonas brought out the news of his new book, I knew I had to beg for a copy. I loved Ghosts in a Tired Universe and I know he will never fail to amaze me with his exceptional writing craft.
I am correct as always.
Jonas has shown great skill in the challenge of short story writing, to raise one's emotions, thoughts, and dreams in the limitations of a few pages. He has done exceptionally well in this point that whoever is reading this review, you should be getting the book already!
One story that did raise my hair though, and kept me clinching on the laptop reading, to only fall back on my chair from the deep set twist that leaves me on a "woah" state was on the captain and his new recruit. I will not give any spoilers, but it is definitely a story that I would like to tell everyone "Read this one!". It was way beyond words.
It is in Jonas' craft that I do feel very inferior indeed, and it is through this book that I wish to emulate and some day be as good as him. His book has left me begging for the next one, and I know there will be more, I can sense it.
