STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT shows how alternate realities can literally cross paths.
WHAT DREAMS ARE MADE OF is an absolutely excellent story, a perfect example of Connor’s talent.
FIFTY PERCENT OF INFINITY is one of my least favorites, but remains a unique concept of mind and body.
MISSING, PRESUMED LOST is an ironic, post-apocalyptic tale.
PORTAL could be taken as either a suicide account or a tale of ascension.
LAIKA is an alien’s best friend.
DREAM, BABY has lots and lots of dialogue, but very little in the way of a plot.
YOU HAVE ONE NEW MESSAGE makes me not want to check my voicemail ever again.
AFFAIR OF THE HEART is a major transplant issue.
MISTAKEN IDENTITY is a long story about first contact.
END OF THE LINE is quite a surprise.
LIVING IN REALTIME is an example of what the imagination can do.
SLOW LANE is a fantastic twist on immortality.
END OF TERM is definitely my least favorite, and not at all what I expect from Connor.
HERE TODAY features an uncertain future.
PICK AND MIX is a time analogy.
WORLD’S END left me wondering if it is real or the best con ever.
INFORMATION OVERLOAD made no sense to me…possibly the author’s intention?
UNQUIET MEALS shows how a space journey can take its toll on the human mind.
I think the reason this anthology didn’t meet my expectations is because there is more flash fiction than short stories, and while the flashes might give readers a thought-provoking and/or entertaining moment, they don’t always deliver a story.
I do recommend that readers check out Connor’s interview here at the Lair.
