**...

A very interesting storyline, ruined by an author who had no idea how to handle plot and some of the finer details of writing. The end totally fizzles out, leaving you wondering what the author was trying to achieve.

Worth a read, but set your expectations low.

**...

A strangely written story of a planet with a predicting machine. Because of a prediction, an assassin is sent to kill an Earth scientist.

Details are only vaguely described: A man is walking down the road (no other details about him), two men are killed (no other details.) The story has a nice twist at the end, but seemed like a puppet show--no one has much characterization, they behave the way they're supposed to.

Author of the Day

Angela Roquet
Angela Roquet loves everything macabre - with a dash of comedy. She is also fascinated by world religions, the afterlife and mythology. This clearly shows in her work, where mythological characters tend to make an appearance, showing off their more mundane sides. Today, Roquet talks to us about what inspired her book, Graveyard Shift, why she has a female reaper in the leading role and how she used to raise eyebrows in public with the types of books she was reading.
