- Sudden Death (endorsed by James Patterson & Clive Cussler)
on March 12, 2011
They say 'write what you know' and Balkind certainly knows golf.
This story draws you into the competition and the pressures on and off the course as his protagonist, Reid Clark reaches the top of his game, where 'sudden death' is a bit more than just a sports metaphor. An enjoyable read. Looking forward to more from the author
- Blood Picnic and other stories
on May 04, 2011
Well, Tony has served up a meal of little bits of excellence. I loved reading the short, short shorts, but was (very) frequently frustrated that it was over too quickly.
Paranormal, horror, fantasy, and a melding of all three genres should keep you awake at night.
Maybe because you can't stop reading. But maybe because you can't get the image of "[f]rom behind the head of it, two long yellow fangs flashed out, then arced forward convulsively to bury themselves in her wrist" out of your head
A novel from Tony is needed, with bigger bites and more of the above. Heartily recommended.
- Let Me Read Your Mind
on May 12, 2011
A great start.
I know, it's a short story. And as a short story I liked it. A bit too front heavy, but I liked the concept and the humor. I look forward to more from this author.
- Loop Vacation
on Feb. 29, 2012
It’s not that far in the future and time travel is a commercial enterprise. Marine Major Mark Multon and his wife, Beth, decide to exploit this new capability and double up on his six-week furlough. Just before it’s time to re-deploy they head back six weeks, meet themselves for dinner and drinks, then start a vacation covering half the continents of the globe on ‘borrowed’ time.
But the un-time travelled version of Mark and Beth discover something about their future trip. Or think they do. Or maybe they don’t. The reality of what you think you know and how it can impact what you are have already done six weeks hence is laid out is a twisted tale that never lets up.
It is, quite simply, one of the best examples of ‘what if’ I’ve ever run across. His description of the science of time travel is believable, and actually pretty easy to understand.
And his “Truths of Time Travel” rival Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics.

This review is long overdue.
I would not normally go out of my way to read a vampire novel, but the blurb grabbed me.
The story itself is very engaging. Casey, the world-weary "Nosferati" no longer craving blood, under Moira Flynn's microscope. She's a researcher who has noticed peculiarities in Casey's patients. The AIDS victims he administers to, while locked up in prison, have a much higher survival rate than the average.
From this point Mr. Lewis launches a gripping story that not only is a well written thriller, it also proposes a truly probable origin story for vampires. I literally couldn't put it down. And months after reading it, I can't get it out of my mind.
For a book to get 5 stars from me, it needs to grab me as a reader and make me forget I'm reading. I was in Casey's world. And I want to be in it again.
Read this. You won't regret it. A SOLID 5 stars.
