Smashwords book reviews by G Miki Hayden

  • Remodeling: Buying and Updating a Foreclosure on Sep. 07, 2011

    This is a must-read for anyone planning to buy a foreclosure and renovate. It's a good read, actually, for anyone who plans to buy an existing house for the first time. And it's a fun book since we readers didn't have to go through the struggles that the Smith family did--although I'm sure they're glad to have come out the other end. The book is well written and nicely detailed.
  • Hidebound on Sep. 19, 2011

    A trip in outer space takes some surprising and deadly turns for an attractive young woman wanting to strike out on her own. But she's not really alone since her alien companion is particularly capable. When the customs of otherworldly Ferenc's home planet lead to undreamed-of results for Fissa, who is more curious than wise, the outcomes are life changing for not just the two of them. The well-written story gives readers plenty of action and an even greater dose of exotic romance.
  • Pretty Pink Planet on Oct. 09, 2011

    An intriguing and satisfying story that tells us what's really going on, on this pretty pink tourists' destination.
  • Hot Yellow Planet on Oct. 09, 2011

    A fun sequel to Pretty Pink Planet. Lots of good characters.

    Editor Juliana Rew has provided an anthology series from Third Flatiron Publishing that allows, at least in Lost Worlds, 13 authors to express their fantastic visions of the past, future, parallel universes, and whatever we might have in our here, there, and everywhere. What a blessing for both writers and too-busy-for-going-through-a-long-piece-of-work-right-now readers. My favorites here won’t be your favorites, and that’s one thing so lovely about having an anthology—it’s a smorgasbord of flavors to fit so many tastes. (No sardines please, but how about some meatballs.) The ones I liked best? “Lindow Five” by Judith Field combines magic with a bit of time travel and action with characters we genuinely like. “Schrödinger's Soldier” by Ron Collins proposes a solution to the end of our universe—or does it? Yes, physics is involved. These, plus 11 other bell-ringing, inventive stories are yours forever for a mighty small price, so boot up your readers—or download to your PC. “Jango Rides Again” (great language use) by Maureen Bowden takes us into the magic room at the back of Uncle Leo’s bookshop. “Parallelobirds” by Soham Saha is a sad tale of a space mission in which slinkies take the stage. And “Breach of Contract” by Andrew Kozma shows the dangers of doing business in a very different context. Enjoy one, enjoy them all on your commute or while waiting in line at the post office in our usual universe.
