...This very short story may be of interest to fans of alien abduction stories, but there's not really much new here for those already familiar with the genre...

A young man wakes up to find his dream of having something implanted into his skull was not a dream. There’s a wound in his head and a small silver device on his pillow…and then things get worse

This is a very short story with a slow start, but once the action kicks in the story picks up the pace almost too quickly. Things happen with little explanation and scenes change very quickly. The ending is abrupt and, to me at least, the weakest point. It tries to be deliberately ambigious, but actually negates most of what has already happened.

This may be of interest to fans of alien abduction stories, but there’s not really much new here for those already familiar with the genre, and not really enough of a story to draw in those who aren’t.

I’m suggesting another reviewer look at this in case I am being unfair, but despite the good writing, the lack of explanation and weak ending knock it down to a 2 for me.

  • Inser
    a very enjoyable short read that most sci-fi fans will enjoy.
  • The Planet of the Last Judgment
    A fast sci-fi action short story, with some neat twists. The problem is that what it does, it does well, but what it does has been done better before.
  • From a Foreign Shore
    It is hard to pick a favourite story, because they are all so good. A truly excellent short story collection.
