Helmy Kusuma was born into a small family where he spent most of his childhood dreaming and fantasizing about galaxy far far away and being a captain of starship enterprise.
Growing up he met up with the world and its mysterious beings, girls. Thus he spent the next twenty years or so on the precarious subject, man's addiction to these beings.
And so became his first novel.

There is Hope has two short stories that are very entertaining and fun to read. The first short story, “Six-inch Claws” starts out with an attention grabbing first few pages then…I cannot tell you what happens because it will spoil the story, but it was something I was not expecting. I would love to see this short story expanded into a novel.
The second story, “Polka Dots” takes an interesting look at people and the shirts they wear. Is it true that you can tell what a person is like by the clothes he/she wears? Is there a prejudice towards others that dare to be different? Helmy explores these questions in a light very descriptive manner.
I truly enjoyed reading There is Hope and for a nice, light, quick and easy read, I would recommend this book.
