Smashwords book reviews by Lewis Attrib
- Original Strand
on Dec. 01, 2012
I was looking for something short that would entertain without taking up too much time.
Original Strand is well written and sets up an intriguing story in its first pages.
It's a post-apocalyse scenario, though technology still just about hangs on in a degraded state on the Moon where a handful of survivors discover a cryogenically preserved survivor from the destroyed Earth. How much of a threat he poses to them creates the tension in the story. The ending is possibly not the strongest resolution but overall this is an enjoyable and worthwhile read for a time-limited budget.

The aftermath of a fatal boating accident - or was it an accident? Interesting premise with a good sense of atmosphere given that it’s a very short piece.
- Watching Marilyn
on Nov. 11, 2013
The 60's are just starting to swing, the Rat Pack are riding high and the Beatles are still over the horizon. The Cuban Missile Crisis is looming and there seems to be some link between the threat of nuclear war and the mysterious death of Marilyn Monroe. But however far-fetched the premise seems there's an authentic feel to this story, It's hard to tell which are the real events and real characters and which are the not very obvious inventions. And even if we all know how things turned out it's still fascinating to read how the historical events affect the characters. A compulsive read.
- Divine Deception: The Will Traveller Chronicals
on March 21, 2014
Divine Deception is one of six books in the Will Traveller Chronicals series. Robert, the hero of the tale, gives us a first person account of his adventures after finding himself transported to New World, a technically advanced Theocracy in which he has the identity of a member of the ruling family of despots and consequently granted god-like status.
He sets about exploring this exotic world, and despite the distraction of numerous women who lose no time in shedding their clothes and making themselves sexually available, he sets about righting the evils of the oppressive regime, pressing all the right democratic buttons even if his feminist agenda may be undeveloped.
In terms of style, characterization and even plot I was reminded a good deal of the 'golden age' of science fiction - when A E van Vogt heroes developed super powers and Edgar Rice Burroughs magically transported John Carter straight into the centre of the action on Barsoom. The sex too, through frequent, is not really explicit by 21st century standards.
So expect no profound challenges from Divine Deception, this is unashamedly a fast-paced adventure aimed directly at entertaining open-minded, (and broad minded) readers.
