McIlvaine's Star

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


This is a fascinating short story with a uncertain ending, as the reader wrestles with ideas about conviction, suspicion and embrace of the strange, and the risks of pursuing the new at the expense of the known. It is for the most part humorous but nevertheless has a dark and brooding sense that is mildly unsettling.

Weird Sci-Fi

The story was fine. It reminded me of a Twilight Zone episode.
