I don't often find reviews/books detailed here that intrigue me enough to feel compelled to purchase them. This one does. I'm glad to have 'bumped' into you today.

The Garden on the Edge of Time (Short Story) - 7/14/2006 10:24:46 AM
I thought this was a very intriguing story. I did how the human size of Cormac came across in his love for his daughter. The ending was good and I thought Cadron got what he deserved. My only suggestions would be to consider using a POV narration strictly from Cormac's perspective. I think that will heighten the suspense. Also, the sci-fi terms were a bit hard to grasp. I had to read it a couple of times to understand what you were driving. If anything, I might suggest you try to bring it down a bit. Mind you, these are only suggestions, nothing more.

This is a wonderful story!
I did struggle with a few things. Most prominent was the reference to owning pets. It feels sorely out of place (show, don't tell). With your ability to tell a story well, I think the reader is able to make his/her own correlation without that reference.
I very much enjoyed this story.

Hard science wrapped in a tender love story of a father for his daughter.

Great love story wrapped in a beautiful package of Celtic folklore.

Francis, I dread that day. I think about it more and more. Our marriage has lasted 47 years and I hope its ME that goes first.

Nicely said. I had a room mate in college who was quite a philosopher in his own way. He loved science, particularly the way science keeps breaking being down into smaller and smaller particles hunting the smallest one. He said to me one day,
"It seems that scientists keep learning more and more about less and less until soon, they'll no everything about NOTHING at all."

A Lady's Lament (Ginger's Song) (Poetry) - 9/21/2007 11:40:08 AM
That is wonderfully profound. Learn how to refuse sex. That is how to find love. Everyone wants a young woman to smile at everyone else, then they scorn her for not being judicious in her choices.

Hello. I liked the composition. I liked reading your poem aloud.
I also play with words (verbs); but you are so different and it sounds 'poetic'.
Please feel free to comment on my page at the Den.

You really do paint a picture with your words - winter at the resort is a very peaceful and hauntingly beautiful time.

Is there a line missing in the next to last stanza? Unfortunately, all too oten, love doesn't work out the way we want it to do.

I like this one too. The quote is good. I think I
will have to read Dover Beach. The ending of your poem is terrific.

This reminds me of Stephen King for some reason. Did you ever read The Stand?
Very nice job on this one.
