Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Deep Future by Eric Brown is a collection of science fiction short stories. They are well written with a recurring theme of lost love in various forms - loss of a child, sibling, spouse, etc. Some are quite unique while others bear similarities to each other. If you enjoy short stories with a sci-fi basis you will probably enjoy these stories.
These stories are about love in its various forms with a science fiction backdrop. There are aliens, but the stories are more about the human characters than the aliens. <p> The characters are well developed for short stories, with the dynamics between them easy to follow and believable, although some are more outlandish than others. Plot lines are varied and quite good, which is what science fiction/speculative fiction is all about. Love the writing style, concentrating on the human aspects more than the aliens but they are still there. </p> <p> I thoroughly enjoyed this collection and will be looking for more by this author. Love it! Recommend to any and all! I received this free from the author for an honest review. No compensation involved.</p>
