    One thought on “Grit and Grace”

    1. I read Anthony Eichenlaub's Justice in an Age of Metal and Men last year, and was eager to devour this second installment. The thing I enjoy most about this story is how Eichenlaub captures a dirty, gritty environment while maintaining a futuristic society reminiscent of Joss Whedon's Firefly. We get hints right away that all is not as it seems with this particular bounty hunter, and I enjoy how the author slowly reveals clues until we get to the surprising (and satisfying) ending.I'd recommend [...]

    2. I liked this novella! It's short, but it packs a punch and it has everything you'd want: a hero (a bit shop-worn), a heroine (plucky and smart), villains (mean S.O.B.'s) and enough technology to last a lifetime.The story is set in an America--Texas, to be precise--that is somewhat changed from what we know. It's a world in which libraries are history, cars float, and technology is paramount. In fact, technology has replaced, just about, everything that makes us human. Memories can be uploaded, p [...]

    3. Short but sweet. This is more of a short story that a novella. This is based in the world that his other book is set in. This book follows a bounty hunter on a job. Only the quarry is a little girl, and he has lost his memories - and something seems strange about the job. This is a well written story. My only real criticism is that he doesn't provide quite enough internal dialog during the action scenes to understand the intention of the MC, and sometimes it's needed to understand the scene.

    4. I *really* liked this novella, as it was right in my wheelhouse! Loving sci-fi tv shows/movies like the franchise 'Firefly', this certainly whetted my appetite. I'm also a fan of some cyberpunk novels like "Headcrash" and "Snowcrash", so this was a bit less far-fetched and more tangible entry approaching that genre. I can't wait for the next installment!

    5. As with the 1st book, I said I do not usually read Science Fiction. I found the book well written & easy to read. This says much for a non- Science Fiction fan.
