Smashwords book reviews by Daphne Coleridge

  • Flight 1401 A Science Fiction Anthology on April 16, 2012

    Five clever and inventive stories which were fun to read. My favourite was “In My Own Hands”, which provides a surprisingly convincing explanation for the pace of development in computer science. The author uses his very fertile imagination and his scientific knowledge to explore some quirky twists to ideas old and new; including man’s first encounter with alien technology and the unexpected potential of a boy's tablet. A quick read, but with enough new ideas in it to keep me thinking.
