Smashwords book reviews by Stephen B5 Jones

  • We Don’t Plummet Out of the Sky Anymore on Feb. 06, 2012

    Great story, well presented.
  • Etiquette with Your Robot Wife and 30 More SF/F/H Lists on Feb. 06, 2012

    Very funny--sarcastic really. Good for when you want a light, entertaining read.
  • Call of the Herald on May 31, 2012

    A well written journey into a new world.
  • Plantgirl on May 31, 2012

    Charming and warm. Not the ending I expected, but I liked it.
  • Delightfully Twisted Tales: Family Antimatters (Volume Six) on May 31, 2012

    Truly lives up to its name.
  • Spirit Thorn (A Tale of Parallel Worlds) on June 20, 2012

    This was great fun, a fun-loving romp. It's the kind of story adults will love to read to children, and the children will enjoy it too.
  • How To Be A School Bus Driver on June 21, 2012

    There's lots of good information in this book. If you are, have been or wanna be a driver you might want to take a look at this. Also, if you have kids who ride the bus it might be helpful to look at it from the other side.
  • Tribe on June 21, 2012

    The story is well considered from beginning to end. The hero, annoying at first, but he grows on you. A welcome addition to the superhero genre, and an enjoyable read.
  • The Roof on June 21, 2012

    I read this story a few days ago and I'm still thinking about it. It's that kind of story. There's a lot of heart in this, well worth looking at.
  • The Book Reader on July 21, 2012

    I liked this story. Deep and methodical, it kept my attention to the end.
  • Vengeance Is Mine (An Emily O'Brien novel #1) on Sep. 21, 2012

    A perfect weekend read with true to life characters and a compelling plot. Good job.
  • Incursion on Sep. 26, 2012

    Good story. It makes me wonder what happens next.
  • A Crack in the Wall on Feb. 19, 2013

    A good, well-written story. I honestly didn't know where it was going. I look forward to reading more.
  • Sarah on Feb. 19, 2013

    A well executed short story which really had a lot going on. The only thing that bothers me is that the story ends with a "comma" instead of a "period". It's almost a write your own ending.
  • Buried Truth (An Emily O'Brien novel #2) on March 29, 2013

    Here is my candidate for most likely to become a paperback. Entertaining and engaging.
  • Extreme Measures (An Emily O'Brien novel #6) on Dec. 04, 2016

    Worth the wait. Another great story in a great series. For anyone who likes detective mysteries. I look forward to the next one.
  • Hidden in Darkness (An Emily O'Brien novel #7) on Jan. 06, 2018

    Sometimes a series goes stagnant because the stories drop into a pattern. This isn't happening here. Each story is a gem. Well worth the read.
  • Tangled Web (An Emily O'Brien novel #8) on March 14, 2019

    Another enjoyable story in the series, number 8 and there is still more to say, and there are still surprises around every corner. Thanks, keep writing.
