    good short michael. i was suprised to see you are from sw minnesota. i myself am from sw minnesota. small world.
  • Dying to Live: Life Sentence (Book 2) on April 21, 2010

    I enjoyed this story very much. I usually dont like zombie stories that stray from the traditional zombies but this story is very well written. i liked the characters and the community. would love to read a story on what happened to will and his gang.
  • Spinward Fringe Broadcast 6: Fragments on Aug. 06, 2010
    (no rating)
    this is a good series. cant wait for the next one. and i loved the they might be giants song "birdhouse in your soul" reference. gave me a good chuckle and was completley unexpected.
  • Hunted (Book 1 of Hunted) on Aug. 25, 2010

    good story. but the militia must be pretty dumb if they plastered photos of april on TV but didnt check her boyfriends apartment for 2 1/2 days after that. im pretty sure they would have made that connection from people calling in from the university.
  • The Zombie Chronicles 2: Discovery on Sep. 09, 2010

    this was your best story yet. i liked it a lot. im usually not a fan of thinking/smart zombies but i like the way you use them in your story. i guess the only part i didnt like was that red was missing for most of the ending but it sounds like you will be doing a short story on that so i will forgive that. keep up the good work.
  • The Great Fall: Infection on Oct. 26, 2010

    i liked it. looking forward to what happens next.
  • The Free, Online, Concise Guide to No Limit Holdem Poker on Nov. 30, 2010

    im just a begginer and dont know much about the game. this helped a lot with the terms, position, betting and a good general strategy for beginners. i also learned more about outs and odds. i never really considered this stuff when playing before. i always just guessed as to what i was doing and probably why i rarely win.
  • Advanced Holdem for Home Games on Dec. 03, 2010

    this was very helpful. i feel much better about my game now. before i was the clueless fish. playing hands i thought were good out of position and making stupid calls and bluffs. i know im not a pro our anything now but i feel like i have a much better understanding of the game. so far ive only played online. next week might start playing in a monday night cash game were ive heard there are several "loose aggressive" players. thanks
  • Discipline on Dec. 14, 2010

    I liked it and would like to read more. It reminded me of one of the dune books when a young boy is cast out of the siech and is the first to learn to ride the sand worms. I think it would make for a good novel.
  • Shatter (The Children of Man, #1) on Dec. 29, 2010

    Thought it was a good read especially for being free. I will definatley read the next book.
  • A Land of Ash on Jan. 31, 2011

    I'm a pretty big fan of anything post-apocalyptic. Usually zombies. But this scenario is equally as frightening. I liked the collection. Well done.
  • False Colored Eyes: A Short Story on Feb. 25, 2011

    Cool short story. Left me wanting to know more about what happens next.

  • Harmonics: Rise of the Magician on Aug. 03, 2011

    It was an ok read. I'd check out a follow up book to find out whats going on here. Lots of un-answered questions.
  • Backcountry Trail Pics on Aug. 05, 2011

    Amazing pictures. I was in Yellowstone when I was younger but forgot how beautiful it is. I didn't grow up to be much of an outdoorsman. Not much for scenery here on the plains in Minnesota. When I'm older and not stuck in the office I might have to travel more. Thanks for sharing.

    I agree with above review. You could bundle these and charge something. Or charge a small amount per short story. I am hooked on this series.
  • Significance - a Science Fiction Short Story on March 15, 2013

    Great story. I especially enjoyed the ending.
  • Golf Tales Volume I on April 05, 2013

    Love these stories. As an avid golfer and lifelong Minnesota resident I especially like that several of the stories take place in Minnesota. There is nothing quite like golf and the time spent playing with good friends. I didn't start playing much until after college, wish I would have caught the golf bug at a younger age.

    I forgot to rate this one earlier but it is one of my favorites of the series. Love the build up to the revenge. And its cool when these characters tie in with another story.

    Very cool take on the origins of Riddick. I would enjoy more of the story.
