In the last year, I’ve read a lot of short fiction, from novelettes down to collections of “drabbles” (100 word flash fiction stories). Judging works of different lengths was difficult until I realized the same rules applied. While more focused, to make a good read, shorter works require the same elements as a novel, only less. You need enough characterization to understand the motivations, history, and personality of the character for the specific story. Too much detail is bad, just like trying to give too much detail about a character in a novel. The same concept applies to plot or any other story element we might think of. This story hit the mark. We learn a lot about Dan Cooper, the protagonist, because as the main character and narrator we need to understand him the most. Gomez fills us in on life events that brought him to his situation as the story starts. We understand his motivations and why he reacts the way he does. The minor characters we get to know just enough, but not too much. The plot is tightly focused and appropriate for the length. Last, there is a twist at the end, which I especially appreciate in short fiction. **Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. **

Dan Cooper, formerly in the Navy, just landed a job on the shuttle to Moonwalk, the Earth's first out-space, luxury hotel. Since everything is automated, his job consists simply of helping with luggage, entertaining the guests during the two-hour flight, and making sure everyone follows safety procedures. This is his first flight and his passengers include two singers, a football player and his starlet girlfriend and a world-famous doctor, known for her ground-breaking work with human genetics. It should be a cake-walk to get to Moonwalk . but something goes wrong. Short, sweet and with a terrifically suspenseful ending (I must get the next book in the series), "Celebrity Space" is what sci-fi should be! You definitely need to read this book.
