There were parts of this book that interested me as a writer. It would certainly be more relevant for non-fiction than fiction, but it’s still useful either way. …

My #BoutOfBooks 18 Wrap Up and Book Review #NewToMe2017 #FlightsOfFantasy

Book Reviews from December #NewToYou2016

Cosmic Seasoning: A Collection of Short Stories By L.G. Keltner July 29, 2015 This collection of speculative fiction stories was very fun to read. I enjoyed the “Polite Letter of Complaint” with the line: I would never insult such a rotund, mentally-deficient, greedy despot such as yourself. There are some news-relevant, deep stories mixed in …
