Metaphorosis is a collection of short, speculative fiction stories. The stories themselves are quite interesting, featuring, at times, a rather unusual cast of characters. Some stories are clever with deeper meanings woven behind them; others are more lighthearted and fun.

Unfortunately, I found the book could use a little more polish. The writing, on the whole, is rather good. But there are moments of awkward phrasing and passive sentence structure that weakened the narrative. It wasn’t so sever

This is a collection of short stories, some long and some short. I read the book, trying to figure out just what the author was writing about and what his message was. I came away empty handed. I rarely find a book that says next to nothing to me, but this is the book that did. The stories are short, for the most part. The author can write well and very descriptively. However this book just was not for me. I received this from Library Thing to read and review.

A collection of short stories (some very short) in the fantasy, science fiction and speculative fiction genres.

My favorite story from this group was House of Hope, a story written from the perspective of the house looking into the human condition.

Some of these stories will make you think, and some are just for fun.
