Jack Thompson is an international bestselling author, finding voices in many genres. His latest release is Swimming Upstream, the third book in the bestselling Raja Williams mystery series. He has also written political thrillers, science fiction, paranormal romance, children's stories and fairy tales.
According to Jack, whether reading or writing, what makes a story great is how well it communicates to the reader. Whether presenting him with a hero he wishes he could be or a villain he chooses to hate, the characters must relate to the reader on a personal level. A reader will leave a good story in an improved condition. He may have learned something new about the world or himself, or simply been well entertained. That's why Jack writes.

This is a great short story. It's got a good pace, interesting characters and a surprise ending. I think it would have been great as one of the original Star Trek episodes.
I really like Ax Weller. I'm ready for more of his tales!
