Nathan M. Beauchamp’s “Flesh of my Flesh” – A married couple travels through space on a long journey and a perilous mission. And the seven-month-old being exposed to intense radiation is a crucial part of that mission! Why are they experimenting on him like this? A powerful and poignant story about being a parent, how we experience it and how we define it that hits home to anyone with a heart.
Samuel Peralta’s “The Way the World Ends” – A poem about the what happens when our narrator’s world ends. Simultaneously epic in scope and intensely personal in vision, it evokes a strong sense of despair, sadness, and longing to hold those we love for one last time before the end of everything.
A.K. Meek’s “Second Invasion” – Trisha is walking through downtown San Antonio, Texas with her two young children when strange aliens start falling out of the sky! These aliens are terrifying, armed with a gruesome weapon. If that’s not chilling enough, the aliens also absorb a person's memories as they die! What will Trisha do when faced with this onslaught and will these aliens succeed in their invasion? This intense story gave me deep shivers while also keeping me riveted with each ghastly death. It also takes place in the same world as the author’s story “Thoughts As Water” from Tales from the Canyons of the Damned: No. 5 .
Kevin Lauderdale’s “The Peacemaker” - On the planet Menim, Troth terrorists try to assassinate Ambassador Wintner from afar! Embroiled in a civil war of sorts, the government is trying to handle it until the terrorists make a bold move. What will happen next? This is an adventurous tale that effectively examines a conflict from two different points of view, embroiled in a complicated political situation. It also features a very clever, devilishly unexpected ending that was a blast to read from beginning to end.
Daniel Arthur Smith’s “The Off World Kick Murder Squad I” – Eller and his motley crew of highly trained specialists take on a high-risk job with a big payday to deliver a mysterious package. But not everything is what it seems and suddenly, their lives are put at risk! It’s filled with shady rogues, imaginative, exciting battles, startling revelations and an ending that begs for a continuation that I need to read right now! This rough and tumble universe is infused with fun, thrills and an "anything goes" attitude. Part two can't get here soon enough.
Each story in this volume takes full advantage of the space theme and runs with it, taking the usual horror and suspense vibe from previous “Canyons” collections and giving it a refreshing spin to tell top-flight, exhilarating tales that are truly out of this world.
Flesh of my Flesh: Can parental love overcome freaky, self induced genetic mutation? Episode 1, I think!? Nice German lesson too.
The way the world ends: Sweet sadness in 1 minute.
The Second Invasion: Now this was really exciting blast action epic-ness ....episode 1 most likely!!
The Peacemaker: Cool 'Star Trek feeling' to this story, but a TAKE NO SH$T Star Trek! Season 1, episode 1?
The off world kick murder squad I: What a blast (pun intended). Most definitely episode 1. Yeah indeed!
Next - gads, this edition on Canyons was GREAT! Might be my favorite to date, and I've been reading all of them. They've kept me company during chemo and most of a full year of sickness. They've made my life more bearable during a very difficult time and kept me entertained.
Each one seems to have improved, although I am not sure how because they've all been great.
5 stars, recommended for all your 'NEEDS - Have to Have - Show me what to read Next!' Books.
