About Sylvan Scott

I wrote about robots.

When I was a kid, my first story was about robots that looked like people: the only survivors of a world-wide nuclear war. What can I say? I grew up in the 70's.

Since then I've sculpted all manner of stories about all sorts of topics. Science Fiction and Fantasy still remain favorites of mine and, usually, what I can express in speculative fiction I'd rather not express in other formats.

I love short stories and am working on making this writing bug that I've harbored for so many years finally work for me.

Here goes nothing.

An original, ethereal Christmas-themed short story with a subtle saucy edge, and sympathetic characters.

For some reason, Sylvan, I was reading more... hearing more... than just the words in the story.
Your writing becomes a world unto itself, as though it doesn't matter who reads it or "gets" it. It's powerful because the words make it so.
We need more caring and love in this world than judgmental people.
I liked it very much and hope your writing bug gives you a great big bite.
Keep writing.

Review by: Jakebe Jones on Nov. 18, 2011 :
"Winter Thunder" is a decent story with a Christmas message a little bit different from most -- that sometimes, it's good to be aware when you're standing in the way of your own happiness. The strangeness of the scenario is charming and whimsical enough to keep you reading, and the hopeful message leaves you with a nice, warm feeling past the ending.

Nice work!

Solid story. Not my cup of tea, but I can't fault it for that.

Though I thought it was Kris Kringle, not Chris Kringle.
