So often, the trend of modern sci-fi has seemed to bend towards the gore-laden shock-fest that belongs in the horror genre. This story has a refreshing grasp on what the concept of science fiction is supposed to be about. As writers, we also harbor a love of reading. The two go hand in hand. When one has indulged for so long in the literary adventure known as writing, it is also a bit of a habit to critique, rather than simply enjoy. I enjoyed this one immensely.
