About friendship and adolescence and sexuality and rage, loneliness and alienation and psychosis, courage and cowardice, the human mind and body and spirit under stress and in agony, the human heart in unending conflict with itself.

Nightflyers – Read this, Sandkings and Remembering Melody all in one sitting. The story is interest but I thought it relied too much on dialogue for exposition. I’m a straight forward person, when I read I don’t necessarily catch the finer points. The real deal is the human story. This is, put simply, brilliant. But the man’s mistreatment of the sandkings and his abuse of power caused the sandkings to involve into something nasty and murderous, and the man worked desperately to rid himself of the monsters he’d created.

The book has sci-fi, fantasy and horror, but the best stories combine all of the above. Overall, though, I have to round up to 4. It includes a story that I think was eventually made into a movie “Sandkings”. The stories were more varied and enjoyable.

Dreamsongs, Volume II by George R.R. Martin

Good story with a good theme. Both are great writers, but they are nothing alike. Perfect ending too – fades out to black in just the right moment Unsound Variations – another not-quite TimeTravel, but is.


A fat man seeking the “monkey treatment” to help him lose weight but the treatment involved planting an invisible monkey on his shoulder preventing him eating. This is where GRRM gets imaginative. I kartin really understand the time-travel element completely, but hey, neither do I really understand how to play a good game of chess, so it speaks to the story’s credit that I had fun with it nonetheless.

Every story is different in their intent and lessons they tell.
