Dragonmount just posted a four star review of my forthcoming epic queer sci fi book, “The Stark Divide”:
This story is very epic in scope, spanning over a thirty year period. You get to see the birth of the seedling, its adolescence, and finally its capabilities of being a host and home for humanity. One enjoyable aspect is viewing the technology as it grows, understanding the process taken to ensure the survival of the human race. It’s a well thought out and logical system. The idea of the self-aware AI is given a different spin in this story. They are seen as if they are a new species, ones with souls and worth. I loved the evolution of Lex as she grew and began to gasp her place within the universe, and her purpose for being brought to life.
“I loved the evolution of Lex as she grew and began to gasp her place within the universe, and her purpose for being brought to life.”
The details of Forever were intricate. It was easy to picture the terrain and landscape of the asteroid, and so interesting to imagine the aspects that made it unique, like the plants glowing with an ethereal light, powered by the lifeforce of Lex. The concept was exciting.
Thanks so much to Dragonmount and to my friend Foster Bridget Cassidy, who made this happen:
