“I enjoyed reading this one. I rather liked the story, even though it’s dark and moody. The setting and the theme was well done and although Silvana and Janusz are supposed to be together, you can feel the detachment between the two of them because of the war. It changes everything and when they do” read more

“I loved this book about finding new friends in a new home while learning about their shared history of German occupation during World War II. I especially liked the way it was written through letters.

Rak posted a review of Dicebox

“Dicebox is a slice-of-life sci fi that, somewhere along the way, develops a major plot and a large ensemble cast. The story follows Griffen and Molly, two transient workers in a spacefaring society. They're happily married, but things aren't perfect-- Molly sees disturbing visions, and Griffen's pas” read more

Bonus points: nearly all-female cast.” read more
