BOOK REVIEW: Two novellas by Brad R. Torgersen

OutboundOutbound by Brad R. Torgersen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The award-winning science fiction novelette from award-winning writer Brad R. Torgersen. "Outbound" first appeared in the pages of Analog Science Fiction and Fact Magazine, going on to earn the praise of readers and authors alike.

Upon reading this novella, one can most certainly appreciate why it has been so successful - it's really, really good. Full of heart and soul, it's an emotional roller coaster like I've never experienced before in a science fiction story. Not without Torgersen's trademark hard sci-fi elements, the story is one of love and loss, pain and hope and, above all, humanity. Read it, you'll love it.


Ray of LightRay of Light by Brad R. Torgersen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Not your typical tale of alien invasion or apocalypse, "Ray of Light" is the story of Max and Jenna Leighton, father and daughter, trapped by catastrophe in the last place on Earth humans have been able to survive an endless, sunless night.

A really superb story that tells of human survival and hope. The post-apocalyptic theme is a little different and the finish is full of wonder and excitement. I felt really absorbed into this story while reading it and found it very enjoyable. Torgersen never fails to impress me with his work, he seamlessly blends science, humanity and faith together superbly.
