The Review:

Honesty from the outset~

Granted this collection of short stories is all the work of the same author; however, the standard line still does apply... I have a love/hate relationship with anthologies. Love because I really enjoy the diversity of voices and styles contained within a single volume and hate because inevitably with so many stories there will be a couple I'm unable to connect with. It is always disappointing when that happens because it can colour your view of the work as a...more
J.M. Snyder collects eight of her short stories all with aspects of the paranormal or in other worlds. From futuristic outer space and fantasy to the brink of extinction, the settings are all unique and individual but the emotions and themes are classic struggles of love and desire. From sweet and touching to explicit, this collection of stories runs the gamut of romance and erotica. While Snyder is a prolific writer, I find her edgier stories truly innovative and thoroughly enjoyed each one in...more

This is my book so I'm not going to write a review.

Contains the following stories:
• Escape
• Navigator's Log
• Parking Lot Hero
• Star-Crossed
• The Bard's Song
• The Fall
• VR Palace
• World Enough and Time
This is a great book all of the different stories are well developed and interesting. Normally I would write a longer review but this is a book that truly stands on it's own merit.
