Smashwords book reviews by Royce Day

  • The Copper Bodice on May 02, 2011
    star star star star
    This short story is somewhere between a fairy tale and a horror story, with inexplicable magic and an ending that's anything but happy. It's also pretty triggery if you're sensitive about sexual abuse, but if you can get past that it's worth reading for Hogath's usual lyrical style. With those caveats I consider it worth the price.
  • Broken Chains on June 27, 2011

    A nice moody piece that points out the problems inherent in genetically "improving" on Humanity, which is that a lot of your work is going to be flawed in ways that won't be understood several generations down the line, and that your creations are going to have to live with your mistakes, both physically and emotionally.
