If you know where this post is heading (The Instant Review Challenge, book 7), you may skip to the review.
Go on. Shoo!
If you’re new here: The Instant Review Challenge is just me, downloading ebooks, reading them, and writing reviews for Amazon — all in less than an hour. At least one per day. Until I drop. But not just any ebooks. I’m reviewing the books written for J.A. Konrath’s challenge to write, edit, format and publish a story, complete with author-generated cover… in 8 hours.
Here’s today’s cover for the featured book, which is $1.99 at the time of posting,
And my review:
Holy Space Barnacles, They’re Gambling with the Future!
Wow. I hated to see this quirky sci-fi story end. It drew me in with an irresistible Red Dwarf vibe, and never disappointed.
Between this story’s e-pages I found great writing, humor, poker-playing spaceships, smart-mouthed characters — even the ones with no mouths — and the silent undertow of Something To Think About. (But only if I feel like it.)
In short, it’s all this meat-bag wants from sci-fi, and then some. I’ll revisit Grant’s galaxy as often as the author will have me.
5 stars on Amazon. (Wish I could give it 7.)
