Publisher's Summary

Software developer turned storyteller Kerry Nietz brings artificial wonders to life. Digital Dreams and Other Distractions is essential Nietz—nine tantalizing tales of synthetic futures, unfolding across a background of stars. 

In this surreal landscape, dying legends haunt sheltered keeps, young boys reconstruct ancient giants, astronauts push the boundaries of the solar system, and metal nightmares reign over faraway rocks. Alluring and compelling, Digital Dreams is a multifaceted blend of mystery, imagination, and devotion—as thrilling as interstellar exploration, and as dangerous as another day at the office.

Fascinating!

Kerry Nietz's stories never disappoint, and the narrator did a good job bringing them to life. I'd listen to this again. 😊

Great stories

Nietz is a wonderful author and once again, this book did not disappoint! The first story is of a young woman running a hospice type building on her own with only synthetics to help her. She seems to be very successful in her endeavor until they get a new patient! The story definitely kept me guessing.
And as the title implies, the "other distractions" are smaller stories, some of which involve familiar characters from other books of his. Overall, I really enjoyed listening to this audio book!

Excellent story

Thoroughly enjoyed this excellent collection of stories, very imaginative, if you’ve ever wondered what it might be like to have a comfortable life where robots do all the work & obey your every command, you should definitely read this book, which I would recommend as a young adult/adult read.

Is WOW enough ?

A collection of short science fiction stories and are truly awesome !

Truly freakily amazed and dumbfounded with those short stories!
What amazes me is how good they are, how is it possible to write a complete story which normally is hours long , this author have been able to do it in minutes and perfectly.
The author Kerry Nietz have done an amazing job here, nine short stories which are absolutely incredible.

Joseph Robert with his perfect narration have packaged it all into an awesome audiobook.

Without a doubt
I absolutely recommend for all !!!
