Nope. Naw. Nyet. No way, Jose'

Please go to the new and full edition of The Phoenix Cycle: Would You?

This is a short and dirty edition that was released many years ago for a project.

The new, full, and professional edition is far more pleasing.
Paperback, 38 pages
Published (first published December 25th 2013)

Dear Robert Edward,
I began this story hoping to be entertained. I did not expect to be drawn into this story so hard. I want MORE!!! Please get you some noodles and bacon and write some more about this story.
Leslie is a hoochie and I'm so furious at her. I NEED to know more about the Phoenix Cycle.
Thank you,
Shelby

So, it’s the future, and on your 18th “cycle” you can apply to ascend into the upper echelons of society, where you will no longer labour in an ash-filled purgatory of dreary hopelessness.

Why? This is a good question. The Phoenix Cycle doesn’t specify, so for all we know, the mysterious General does it for the lulz.

Last month I received a message from Robert Edward asking me to read his story. As far as I can understand, it is the introductory story to a longer (uncompleted) work Edward has begu

I like the overall dystopian concept well enough in this teaser but there were a few stumbles that brought it down a bit. I suppose it is a trope that on the 18th birthday young people undergo some sort of trial or selection, this story had what seemed to be a bit of a twist on that (which I don't want to give away). The initial passages seemed a bit disjointed to me as I tried to follow along but it got better. Towards the end it was implied that a character's mother left them at age 18 and the ...more

Would someone tell what the heck I just read, because I sure don't know. It's set in some mysterious dystopian future (no cause of the decline of civilisation is provided) and predominantly focuses on a mysterious character named Steve (no defining characteristics are provided) and his even more mysterious girlfriend, Leslie. So, essentially an unknown man, in an unknown future, fights some unknown social oppression, comes to some unknown decision, which then lead to some unknown consequences. ...more

In the interest of full disclosure I won this story in a draw on another site. The author wanted to know why I wanted to enter the draw and yes, I'm sure he was hoping I would like the book. Ok so now that that's out of the way.

The Phoenix Cycle: Would You? was a step outside of the box read for me, I like to do that every once in awhile read something that isn't really the norm for me. Also this was a nice chance to check out a new author. This is a short story set in what for me felt like a po

Okay, well first of all let me state that this book was very very Amazing! And anytime I use the double very followed by an amazing that pretty much means I think a book just flat out rocks! The author is working on a thesis for college about finding a better way for new authors to break into the fictional book market and as part of his thesis he wrote this book, after learning that I was intrigued and visited his web site and then bought this wonderful book.

Basically as part of his thesis for c

The Phoenix Cycle: Would you?, seems to be a very brief introduction to a much larger story. This section of the story probably raises more questions than it should.

I wondered about the ash, the potato bar, the Inner Circle and who the hell these people were, why they were doing these things and who was the one making them?

I understand that introductions to a story should raise questions, but not that many, and not that many when you're not going to offer anything to the reader as a way of enti

I agree with another reviewer that there needs to be more. This was like a big tease. I got this as a giveaway on Booklikes and I enjoyed it, but I didn't know it was a short story. Well written but where the hell is the rest of the story. We're left hanging.

DNF - Even though this is a short story/novella, I had a hard time enjoying it and staying interested. I guess the writing wasn't for me.

I find sleep and watching television incredibly boring. In place of such ridiculous habits I read and travel whenever possible. I tend to travel by flying in small planes, as I have my Private Pilots license. So expect to find me around small airports scattered over the southwest.
