Editorial Reviews

Happiness is Free SF - D. S.
This story started out in a way that made me think it was going to be silly. The aliens in it were sort of whacked. But as it went on, it grew on me. In the end, it has a message and a grip.
Bees on the brain - Pam Phillips
What can I say? Science fiction fans are a sentimental lot. A story that reassures us that the “first step for a man” is really, really, for sure, the first step on a long journey, is going to make a lot of people happy.

He’s been a finalist for the John W. Campbell Award and the Hugo Award. Some of his most popular writing deals with the ongoing adventures of a space-faring stage hypnotist named the Amazing Conroy and his animal companion Reggie, an alien buffalito that can eat anything and farts oxygen.

Lawrence lives near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with his wife, Valerie, who is neither a psychologist nor a Klingon speaker.
