Hard Reality (Book) - 8/30/2005 1:16:55 AM|
Just when you think this story can't get any wilder, it does! Many of readers have called me a jerk...because they couldn't bring themselves to put the book down!

If you like an exciting, edge of your seat page turner, this book is for you!
The Fog of War (Short Story) - 11/1/2005 9:41:20 PM
Wow George, a very intresting write! Hope its also not the end for us readers. Got me thinking actually ... lol ...
Elsewhere (Short Story) - 9/4/2005 8:24:19 AM
A delightful read. The infusion of the clasic fantasy races with a contemporary world view gives the characters a different spin, a new fresh edge that's been sorely needed. Writing is fluid and funny. An excellent read.
Smoke Filled Room (Short Story) - 6/22/2002 9:35:48 PM
Needs fleshing out.
Detail is important to making it experiential.
Fewer pronouns and more names.
Characterization missing, need to make us care, or better love the character(s).
Sentences should be illustrative.
Dashell Hammett is the best person to read to learn how to make every sentence evokes an image, or picture.
Forget Hammett's Novels. DH writes totally differently for the short story, than for the Novel.
In his short stories, every sentence paints a picture.
Homeward Bound (Short Story) - 12/24/2001 9:46:03 AM
I think this is more of a humor style science fiction story. I know I have seen this style of writing before and this story is as good as any of that venue.
Homeward Bound (Short Story) - 12/21/2001 10:48:04 AM
This had a decent, but somewhat predictable storyline. The main problem I had with the story was the fact that if I had just been told that an alien creature was onboard ship and was due to strike again at any moment, flirting with the opposite sex would be the last thing on my mind. Also, this is just personal preference, but I would've liked to have had a better description of the alien creature. Something more than just (snakelike, with 4 fangs).
If the audience for this story is the young adult/teen, then the dialogue was okay. Otherwise, it seemed a bit immature and tongue-in-cheek (no pun intended).
To The Death (Short Story) - 12/14/2001 8:55:30 AM
I loved it. I have always been a fan of Mad Max and futuristic style writing. I of course write futuristic fiction also. Great story.
Only Human (Article) - 7/1/2003 12:33:44 PM
Thanks, George, for some straight talk. I enjoyed it.

We could end all crime and violence if we could just figure out a way to make everyone telepathic... instant consequences for wrong-doing, instead of waiting around for a court date.

My husband has been an auto tech for several decades, and since he doesn't enjoy reading my writing, I don't get much opportunity to tell him what I appreciate of his efforts either. I think the universe is like a machine. If my husband is what keeps our world turning perfectly on its axis, then he is as close to god as any other profession in the world. I think you machine guys are worth at least a few billion each. :)

you know this sounds a perfect place of which you write, wish we could just say, no you have too much already, give this to those who dont....but some hear some dont want to. We are all a little greedy if we admit it.
Loved the style in which this written, a most excellant piece.

With Love at Christmas (Poetry) - 6/7/2002 5:13:52 PM
now, see - if my husband had ever even just THOUGHT such things, nevermind write them and share them with the world, I'd likely not be going through a divorce right now! Continue to be kind to your woman with words - because those words make all the difference in the world.
New Years '02 (Poetry) - 6/7/2002 5:11:14 PM
I enjoyed the entire poem, particularly in light of conversations elsewhere along the same theme, but one phrase just reached out and grabbed me: "A better place this world would be
If the emphasis shifted from ?I? to ?We?"
Very beautiful quote - I think you should put that on your bio as your favorite quote *winks*
Free Will (Poetry) - 6/7/2002 5:04:43 PM
What sweet, sweet sentiment. "And so it is I say to you after these many years together
That it?s a choice I?d make again despite the stormy weather " -- very touching.
Free Will (Poetry) - 4/7/2002 8:02:55 AM
I think we can mold fate. I commend you on the shape of your fifteen year relationhip.

Excellent! The fault in not Capitalism, but Greed.

What Fate guides the step, which brings committment?
