Meet the Author

"Author of curiously engaging novellas. His stories are not driven by action but by mood and metaphysics. His premises often begin with fairly standard, often vaguely science-fiction concepts, but he spins those concepts out into melancholy, thoughtful tales in which he explores the emotion and (often) dislocation that people feel when confronted by something outside their normal experience." - Devon Kappa

    good book

    You people should just read this novel yourselves and write your own review on it. I enjoyed reading this novel very much. ShelleyMA

    Okay

    I am a fan but this tale was not one of his better ones. It does link to another of his short stories -- some overlapping of characters and references to previous tales. Still this storyline seemed odd.

    I Also Recommend:

    Disappointed.

    I have several of Mr. Lichtenberg's books, and this one was out of the ordinary. It is short, and even so took me the "Want" to finish it, as it didn't keep me at all entertained.

    I was baffeled, at where it was going the whole time, I felt more like I was sitting at a camp fire, telling stories than anything else. I still am not sure where it went in the story line. I know it's a freebie, but still in his writing capability I was not impressed with this book.

    I have many others, of his, but this is one of them that I would not recommend. 5 star on the people described in it. But to follow the plot 1/2 star.
