About the Author

Charles Freedom Long talks with deceased people all the time. After years of seeing the dead portrayed in countless fatuous ways, Charles decided it was time for someone to show them in a manner some might consider more truthful. That is, life continues beyond the change we call death, the personality survives passing beyond the earthly life and moves on into other dimensions. So, with the help of some friends on both sides of the veil called death, he began writing science fiction, fiction to be sure, but with a spiritualist point of view.

Dancing with the Dead, is much more original and complex (in a good way) from the science fiction I've been reading lately. The basic theme of those books is * Aliens attack earth, hero saves earth by defeating aliens* Wash rinse, repeat for the most part in the next book.. Obviously I like that sort of thing, but Dancing with the Dead, offers a great deal more to science fiction readers. The theme is original and the plot is complex. The characters have a great deal of depth and are quite a bit more sensual:) When reading Dancing with the Dead, I get the feeling of classic science fiction. Long gives the same sensational reading experience as when I enjoyed Asimov, Zelazny and other classic sci fi writers. I would highly recommend this book to any serious science fiction fan.

Dancing with the Dead sweeps you from the Yemeni desert to a manufacturing outpost on the moon. It plunges you into a conflict among the forces of progress, faith, revenge, and greed. Making the novel special among space operas, in this one the hallmark of “civilization” is the integration of the dead into the affairs of the living. Startlingly, the “passed beyond” have as many factions as the living, both on Earth and the planets of the elder races. Initially, I found it difficult to submerge myself into Long’s universe because of (i) head-hopping in the second and third chapters; and (ii) a scene in the fourth chapter where an alien co-worker, later turned love-of-the-jihadist-protagonist’s-life, chemically rapes him. But starting with the wonderful evocation of the desert and the raging dead in the sixth chapter, the story captured me in the conflicts among its characters. From there, the novel compels you to read until you finish, wishing for more. I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.

Dancing With the Dead is a sci-fi book with a bit of everything in it. There is intrigue, fantasy, communication with the dead, aliens, living on other worlds, jihadist groups, and romance. The plot is well thought out and creative. The characters are well developed and fascinating. Enjoyed the book greatly.
