Smashwords book reviews by Stoney M. Setzer
on June 20, 2012
This is a short story anthology whose stories are connected by the frame narrative of Gizele and her mentor Tok. The stories have a bit of a Twilight Zone flavor but also feature nuggets of spiritual truth and a Christian worldview. As in any other anthology, readers will prefer some stories to others, but all of them are enjoyable reads.
West of the Texas Nebula
on Aug. 05, 2012
In "West of the Texas Nebula," Lyndon Perry and Dan Devine have teamed up to present a fast-paced, entertaining "space western" story. For those who may be unfamiliar with this genre, space westerns take Western-type plots and characters and transplant it into a more science fiction-style setting. This story of an old-fashioned power struggle grabs the reader from the very beginning and doesn't let up until the very end. Excellent!
The Vampire in the Church Choir
on Oct. 15, 2012
Matt Mikalatos presents an engaging and enjoyable satire in "The Vampire in the Church Choir." By centering his story on a Christian vampire trying desperately to fit in, Mikalatos satires both the mega-church movement and classic monsters while also slipping in some revelant Christian truths along the way. I highly recommend this and look forward to reading more by Mikalatos.
A Lesson in War - A Sword of Otrim Story [Short Story]
on Oct. 24, 2012
This story goes a great job of combining medieval fantasy with nuggets of spiritual truth. The centerpiece of this story is the conflict between the main character Otrim, a man who is always eager to heed the spiritual teachings of the "Master", and his less enlightened commanding officer, Ardus. If you like reading medieval fantasy that have a deeper meaning, I would highly recommend this book.
