Review by: Mike White on Jan. 8, 2017 :
This story does a good job of establishing mood early on, and it starts to make even more sense as you keep reading. The sparse prose style works here, and the writer is able to create real emotion very quickly.

Review by: Kevin A. Lyons on Feb. 15, 2016 :
A good story in two distinct parts. The first part is the set-up and the second part is the punchline -- this isn't a funny story, but I think the analogy fits. My only regret is that I think more ground could have been covered in the first part of the story, reducing the amount that needed to be covered in the second.

Nevertheless, I liked it!

Not overly good, bad or original

Often I find free short stories fail as I see them as an opening chapter or a precis for a full novel/novellette. Not in this case. How Thomas Summerson has managed to encapsulate so much so perfectly into so few words is incredible.

Loved the twist, it was not telegraphed although there were hints all is not as it appears.

Loved this story! I could picture every detail - I was there with the swans and the kids playing watching this couple's scene play out. Thank you.

Dytopian indeed! I saw a glimpse of a world of comfort women who are androids and AI that is sentient. Please write more of this world!

A friend let me read this on her tablet yesterday so I came to show my support for the author. I love anything with a sci-fi angle. Love this, please write more like this! (I accidentally put this on the wrong book the first time, sorry Mr. Summerson)

Claire & Carl were sitting by the water feeding a swan. The hot dog vendor gave him some free buns. They kissed. The hot dog vendor Larry Birdman knew Claire.
Who are Carl & Larry?
Cool book cover, great font & writing style. A very well schifi or paranormal short story (book). It was very easy to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. Lots of twists/turns. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of interesting scenarios & a great host of characters. This could make a great schifi movie or TV series. No doubt in my mind a very easy rating of 5 stars for this book.
Thank you for the free book
