Smashwords book reviews by Marlene Stotts

  • Worldship Praxis on March 18, 2013

    This is a well written science fiction novel that is both creative in it's content and vast in it's scope. What I enjoyed most was the depth of the ideas, and the unlimited size of the authors imagination. Personally, I grew up on Star Trek The Next Generation so the idea of a universe travelling colony ship is right up my alley. Praxis is one of the Worldships launched in 2089 to recolonize after Earth suffered a super-volcano eruption, nuclear war, and invasion. The story follows the ship and its science minded inhabitants as it makes its journey. Not only is the book bridled with great technological ideas, but it's also a story filled with well developed characters woven together with a clever story line. Highly recommended!
  • The Ice Cream Vendor's Song on March 21, 2013

    This is a collection of short stories from the heart and mind of a very unique person. I was always a big fan of the "Chicken Soup" series, so naturally I gravitate towards compilations of short fiction and stories that provoke thought. The author writes with a great sense of self, and with a wonderful lyrical rhythm to her prose. Each story is written with a different moral, unique message, or interesting vignette of life: her words really make a lasting impact. All in all, this is a great little book to curl up with for either a few minutes, or maybe a few hours. It will definitely make you think. Well done!
