Heliopause by J. Dianne Dotson
"really enjoyable - probably more F in space than SFF

I really enjoyed this and will read the rest. Felt very old school pulp SF but with good women. Good plot driven story. Occasionally questioned whether the people carrying out the plot would really " Read more of this review »

"Voices from the Great Beyond
But my name is Veronica
A riddle wrapped in an enigma"
Heliopause by J. Dianne Dotson
"Delightfully imaginative, action-packed, and full of plot twists, you won’t be able to put HELIOPAUSE down. An instant classic in sci-fi!

The writing flows well and the characters are so compelling. Efron was my favorite character, as well as Ariel. " Read more of this review »

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Where now are the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
Where is the harp on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?
Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing?
They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow;
The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow.
Who shall gather the smoke of the deadwood burning,
Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning?”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Two Towers

“Sure, it was your idea and your fly, but he caught the big fish. Remember, fairness is a human idea largely unknown in nature.”

“If people don't occasionally walk away from you shaking their heads, you're doing something wrong.”
