Sarah Sloane ran out of books to read so she wrote one for herself. It includes many of her favorite things: Marbles, animals, planets, moons, mysteries, plants, cemeteries, crazy people, instantaneous travel, and a whole other world connected to our world. The characters became real and started going off in all different directions to tell their own stories. Sideways, backward, and forward. This is why the stories can't all be labeled neatly, one, two, and three. Nevertheless, they all come from the world of the Marble Game.

They are in the form of marbles, and were inspired by a mysterious marble game given to Eleanor as a child.

Smashwords book reviews by Sarah Sloane

  • Across on Nov. 18, 2012

    I not a fan of YA. It's usually too sappy and self-involved. I thought Across, By Elizabeth Edson was going to be like that at first. But after I got through the first few chapters, I was hooked. The world is well developed, the characters are well-drawn, the writing is smooth, and, most of all, the plot with its interesting twist is very satisfying. Congratulations, Elizabeth. I'm looking forward to your next book. Sarah Sloane, author of The Marble Game
  • Villainous Vic on Nov. 23, 2012

    This story would be great as a 1940's style British comedy. I wonder if the author has tried writing plays? Sarah Sloane, author of The Marble Game
  • Aunt HELLen on Nov. 27, 2012

    A well-written psychological horror novella. Very effective first person point of view. The author maintains a pervasive feeling of dread as she meticulously maps her character's descent. Sarah Sloane, author The Marble Game.
  • The Crystal Pyramid on Dec. 04, 2012

    Very enjoyable, if a bit confusing. I loved the zany sense of humor and interesting wordplay. I think my favorite sentence was: "But as the window rolled down, the string of hopes snapped." The style of the story and dialog reminded me a little of the first two "Spy Kids" movies. I hope to see more from these authors. Sarah Sloane, author of The Marble Game
  • The Founders (Sage Seed Chronicles #1) on Dec. 12, 2012

    The Founders by Holly Barbo has a lot of positives and some negatives. Barbo has created a vivid world with an interesting history. Her description of the primary location is especially good. She is also able to bring to bring to life an impressive visual image of some of the characters. Barbo's focus on the physical predicament of her planet and the sociological effects that result, bring to mind some of the great works of Ursula LeGuin. On the negative side, I felt there was too much repetition and reiteration. Also, there were some awkward sentences every page or two. Both of these problems could be fixed by a good editor. Overall, It was an enjoyable read. I plan to read the next book in the series. Sarah Sloane, author of The Marble Game
