Sci-Fi Series 2 (Simulator, Little Angels, Esperanza)

Rated 5.00/5 based on 8 reviews
“There was nothing human about the scream. In near total darkness, where even the stars had forsaken their shimmering sheen, within the hot breath of the steaming, churning volcanic hot springs, Astrid could only imagine the alien features contracted in a spasm of agony. Pain is pain by any other name. It hurts as much, no matter what the species. A shriek, a short silence, a protracted whimper,

Review by: Amy Taylor on Sep. 9, 2014 :
Sci-Fi Series 2 is an intelligent, witty, and thought provoking collection of short stories brought to us by Author Stan I.S. Law. I always enjoy Law’s books. They are full of esoteric thoughts, interesting and scientifically sound concepts and intriguing characters. There is religion, spirituality, science, family, friendship, heartache, passion, attraction, compassion, exploration and so much more.

This book contains three unique and original short stories Simulator, Little Angels, and Esperanza. They are all captivating and wonderful. Little Angels brings about some interesting concepts of love, family and population control. Esperanza inspires and values friendship. My favorite (though a hard distinction to make) is Simulator. In this story Acting Ensign Astrid Dwain and Lieutenant Bram Jordan are collecting information for the Galactic Navy when a shocking revelation causes Astrid to break the Law of Noninterference. What happens next is both shocking and healing.

This is another great contribution by Stan I.S. Law. As always I am impressed with Law’s work and look forward to more. I highly recommend it!

Review by: Sid Freeman on April 16, 2014 :
I have such a great time reading Law’s books; they always appeal to one’s intellect and allow your creative imagination some exercise. I have read ‘Sci-Fi series 1’ and loved it; so it only felt right that I should give ‘Sci-Fi series 2’ a try. I’m glad I did, although I don’t expect anything less from such talent.

His incredible stories, which are a combination of humor, wit and excellent story-telling, make these short stories mini- masterpieces. If anyone were to write a book under the alias of Stan I.S. Law, you would spot the imposter immediately.

I live in hope that Stan Law never stops writing; his books are a joy to read. I highly recommend this book!!

Review by: Sylvester Drake on Dec. 30, 2011 :
Esperanza is a story that deserves to be a full novel. The characters are finely drawn, the story is replete with suspense, mystery and emotion. I read it wanting to read more, to see what happened to Earth, to the people who inhabit it, to those who leave it for greener pastures. A superb story.

Little Angels is a dire vision of what will happen if we continue to imitate rabbits, or even, perhaps, vermin. A scary picture.

The Simulator is a classic in the tradition of good, solid Science Fiction. Keep writing Mr. Law. And thank you.

Review by: BozenaH on Sep. 24, 2011 :
In the Simulator, Stan Law presents us with a fascinating twist on the honored Sci-Fi tradition that we, humans, are responsible for even unwitting harm we might do to alien creatures. In his inimitable way, he illustrates the future technology, which responds to the ancient concepts of Karma.

In Little Angels the author shows that even within most dire consequences of our self-centered ingenuity, some of us will find a way to benefit from it. But there too, there are consequences. The universal laws will not be denied.

Finally, Esperanza is a story of love, compassion and friendship as only the past generation seemed capable of. Yet here, too, there are consequences, this time even more surprising. I’m sure that all three stories will etch themselves in your memory and, just perhaps, they might change the way you look at the world. This is Science Fiction at its best.

The Simulator took me where no woman has been before—I could really identify with Astrid (what a beautiful name!). Little Angels was more amazing than I could ever imagine. And Esperanza made me shed a tear, both of sadness and, perhaps, of joy. I hope there's more in the series.

Review by: Adam Kerry on Sep. 26, 2010 :
Most SF writers seem to concentrate on technological achievements of the future. Not so Stan Law. He takes them for granted, and instead offers us the extraordinary consequences, which some inventions, trends, or attitudes, might have on us. We can only hope his prophetic warnings will be heeded before it’s too late.

Review by: Bohdan Czytelnik on Aug. 31, 2010 :
There is pseudo science fiction that is filled with monsters and gore. That’s fine, for the young minds. But there are also the giants of the genre who seem to reach out to our potential, both, good and bad, in our not so distant future. Stan Law belongs in the later category. Fascinating what a fertile mind can produce.
