Electric Eclectic Books offers a unique collection of novelettes and I have read many of them.

The less graphic version of Toxic: An Electric Eclectic Book by author Karen J. Mossman takes a softer look at a dystopian society where humans, now … Continue reading “Toxic: An Electric Eclectic Book” by Karen J. Mossman

“Valon” by Charles Mitchell

             I was intrigued by both the cover of Valon by author Charles Mitchell and the book’s description. From the beginning of this science fiction story, I was hooked.

Teenager Randle Dobs lives with his father, Len, on an earth decimated by drought and pollution where … Continue reading “Valon” by Charles Mitchell

Anti-terrorism agent Matthew Kinley of MI6, British Secret Intelligence, is part of a team that … Continue reading “Operation Snowdrop” by Michelle Medhat

Storm Portal (Quantum Touch Book 1) by Michael R. Stern

       I love historical fiction and science fiction. This isn’t a combination easily found in books so I was delighted to discover Storm Portal by Michael R. Stern. The book starts out slowly as Stern sets up the characters of a New Jersey high school teacher, Fritz Russell, and his family and friends. I was a little perturbed with the first adventure when … Continue reading Storm Portal (Quantum Touch Book 1) by Michael R. Stern

TWISTED TALES: 15 Literary Lies & Epic Yarns: Weather the Storm by Neil Douglas Newton

Neil Newton’s contribution to the anthology Twisted Tales is as different from his book The Railroad as cherries are to onions. Weather the Storm is pure science fiction, complete with other worldly beings. I won’t call them aliens because I don’t want to conjure up images of little green men or tall gray creatures. Written in the first person, the story instantly drew me in. … Continue reading TWISTED TALES: 15 Literary Lies & Epic Yarns: Weather the Storm by Neil Douglas Newton

“Immortal and Sane” by Benedict J. Martin

   Leave it to Benedict Martin to provide a unique twist on both science fiction and the paranormal. Coupling these genres through the use of a romantic couple is nothing short of brilliant. Let’s face it, a vampire isn’t likely to get much nourishment from an android. But there is more to this story than meets the eye. First off Nelly Jones is not your … Continue reading “Immortal and Sane” by Benedict J. Martin
