Smashwords book reviews by Local Hero Press, LLC

  • A Fly in Amber on Feb. 21, 2011

    This story reminds me of the kind of pieces that turn up in the "Probability Zero" section of Analog. It starts a little dry, rather like the scotch in question, I suppose, but has a smooth finish with no lingering nasty aftertaste.
