    Story
    "Everything I read science fiction for!"

    While I like a good space battle as well as the next person, I ultimately read science fiction for the ideas. This book is filled with wonderfully crafted stories which examine fascinating questions. What does it do to the human heart when it is possible to suppress emotions? If it is possible to go back in time and witness history, should we do it? What is our real connection to the past?

    Be patient and savor these gems. Great stories. Great characters. Loving performances.

    Brilliant.

    "Phenomenal"

    Incredible depth in such short stories. Excellent power over English from the author conveys stories that in most cases provide intrigue due plausible and well researched science fiction as well as a thoughtful reflection over the much deeper moral contained.
