Rated 5 out of 5 by from THIS BOOK IS A MINDBLOWER!!!! This book is a mindblower! Especially Grant Miller's story "Reverse Polarity".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Very Good Read! “Reverse Polarity” by Grant Miller: X Files re-visited. Grant demonstrates knowledge of paranormal and extraterrestrial theories in this fast-paced futuristic apocalyptic adventure. I had difficulty getting through this one. At times, I questioned why this story was included in the collection and used as a prelude to the other shorts. However, upon conclusion, I do see potential here, were the author to focus greater attention to character development. A prelude to a series, the story/series may appeal to hard core Sci-Fi and paranormal buffs. “Markerstone” by Paul J. Joseph: In this enjoyable story, Paul takes the reader on a candidly human journey into the future. The main characters, a space ship’s onboard physician and a pilot join forces in an adventure that straddles space exploration and technological development. A good start to a series, this story contains some fresh ideas, and good character/story development. This writer shows promise. “Final Thoughts” by Armen Kurdian: A very well written and thought provoking story about a Gnostic extraterrestrial pilot who inadvertently eliminates our solar system. Armen addresses the apocalyptic theme in a unique way, following the thoughts of an old woman and the final thoughts of the pilot prior to impact. I was sincerely surprised and delighted by Armen’s proposition that challenges and illuminates the usual apocalyptic themes. Armen knows how to write! “Norm” by John Britt: John takes the reader on an intimate and interesting journey with an unusual hero, a poor, illiterate magician. The story follows the main character as he yearns for and gradually develops the ability to manifest true magic in order to satisfy his skeptical audiences. John knows how to develop interesting characters and present interesting ideas. “Torture-Rape-Murder” by Edmond Alcid: In all honesty, I was reluctant to read this one given the title, but am glad I did! In this story, Edmond provides a brilliant and observant analogy between man and nature and their most primal behaviours. Edmond places the reader as observer, judge, and jury. Overall Summary: The Publisher: Moose Hide Books has a good eye for emerging talent that is demonstrated in this short story collection. I'd like to see the cover up-scaled to reflect the talent contained within. I would highly recommend reading this sampling of promising writers.
