Eamonn Murphy was born and bred in Bristol in the south west of England many years ago. He grew man size but retained childish interests like science fiction, fantasy and comic books. Never settling to a career he earned beer money on building sites and in call centres. He has a perfectly useless degree in Humanities and History from the Open University. Now, aged, bent and broken, he lives in a quiet cottage with a nice lady where he types reviews for sfcrowsnest and stories for Alban Lake, Nomadic Delirium Press and other small press publications.

Smashwords book reviews by Eamonn Murphy

  • The Tulku of Titan and The Terror of Titan on June 17, 2018

    This is a great little collection. Both stories take place on Titanville, a hydrocarbon processing plant orbiting Saturn's moon. For a full review see https://www.sfcrowsnest.info/the-tulku-of-titan-and-the-terror-of-titan-by-mike-morgan-ebook-review/
  • 3 of a Perfekt Pear on June 17, 2018
    (no rating)
    This collection features three stories from the mind of Daniel C. Smith. In 'Artemis One' a distress signal is received from the moon - but no ships have gone there since the 1970's! In 'The Proteus Effect' there's a mystery on Ganymede when scientists kill each other for no apparent reason. The collection concludes with 'theirownspace' a future tale of kids, cyberspace and disgruntled parents. Nothing is quite what it seems here and I was reminded of the classic SF stories by Philip K. Dick. For a full review see https://www.sfcrowsnest.info/3-of-a-perfekt-pear-by-daniel-c-smith-ebook-review/
  • Nano-Bytes on Aug. 05, 2018

    ‘Nano-Bytes’ is a collection of short-shorts by Daniel C. Smith which I bought because I rather liked ‘3 Of A Perfekt Pear’, his collection of long short stories. First up is ‘Macro-Virus’, an amusing tale about a grad student on an exploratory hike in Chaco Canyon, an important native American historical site with two professors of archaeology. They are hoping to make some new discovery about the vanished Anasazi people. The opening crisis is that their jeep is broken down in the middle of nowhere and their phones won’t work. The disrespectful first-person narrator made this fun and the idea behind the story was clever. All parents want to give their children every advantage in life. Currently, that might mean getting them a good education. In the future, as set out in ‘Real Good Looking Boy’, it’s expensive genetic enhancements. Ted Norris and his wife want only the best for little Davey and make huge sacrifices. When you get to the end of this story, you can see where the idea came from. An SF take on a perennial parental problem. For rest of review go to: https://www.sfcrowsnest.info/nano-bytes-by-daniel-c-smith-ebook-review/
