  • Deep Black Beyond on Feb. 18, 2012

    Deep Black Beyond is a collection of four stories and one novella in the genre of science fiction. 'In memory of bone' a sole survivor of an horrific attack is on the way to be tried for indefensible crime and discovers a witness in the unlikeliest of places. A sweet tale with some imaginative imagery and a great twist at the end. 'Pele's beekeeper' where no one is exactly as they seem is set against the background of a dramatic planet. It was well written and flowed beautifully however the plot was predictable with the reader working out "what happens next" easily. This cannot be said for my favourite tale, "No spaceships go" a love story set in a divided world. Will the divide be crossed? You'll have to read it yourself. I will leave you to find out for yourself about the ice maiden in "Beneath the ice and still" This collection of short stories shows the author's versatility, dealing with love, war and revenge, with visionary imagery. Some of the characters, "the bit players" are a little two dimensional but well worth the read. The novella, 'the light of the earth...' is a quest,well rounded characters and a gentle plot that weaves around the main players, little twists, nothing unexpected. A well written tale. The only disappointing aspect, meeting a Jake that got injured but isn't referenced anywhere else, possibly should read Jack?

    Dan Schwartz reels in the reader to a glimpse of the life of a nosy neighbour and his prey. Well written and engaging
