A5 Large Print Edition: A dark vision of the future via the author Nickolaus A. Pacione. Set during the year 2013, this is a future that no one wants to imagine can happen and inspired by those films that the Discovery Channel put out. This is his first attempt at doing a cyberpunk style Science Fiction story. Rated PG-13 for storm menace. Think what happens when technology survives the Mayan Calendar. No one really knows what the future holds especially the not too distant future. What does the year 2013 look like? This is one of those futures that can be a posiblity. As morbid as it seems, one can ask the question what if and this could be one of those what ifs. This is the what if no one wants to see, but this is one of those that are unavoidable. Inspired by the Quakes and Storms Relief Anthology, namely Trent Roman and Erin Mackay.

I found a copy of this work at my local library. Having had the misfortune to have read "Collectives in a Forsaken Landscape" by the same author, I decided to sit back and give it a fair chance. Perhaps the author had changed his approach to literature and the English language? Perhaps the author had secured a good editor and a copy of The Elements of Style? Not to my surprise, I found that none of these were to be the case in this book. Poorly fleshed out characters and plot, more redundancy in basic sentences (if the sentences had any structure to begin with) and overall just a big mess of words mishmash-ed together to tell some type of story. I'm still not sure what the story is here as none of it made any sense. Was this supposed to be a mystery? science fiction? horror? Does the author purposely try to make his works short so he just starts a thought and never finises it? I have yet to research this author, but judging by his own reviews written here, I believe I can... More > form a good opinion of him based solely on those alone.< Less
