This past week I got the opportunity to contribute to a couple of great articles:

REVIEW EXCERPTS


Ghost Planet was a skillful blend of imaginative world building, scientific mystery, conspiracy and manipulation. The story is tied together by two characters who consistently have the odds stacked against them, but their devotion and dedication will have you rooting for them until the very end.

. . . if you’re a fan of SFRs of any sort, you’d be totally remiss if you didn’t check this book out. The SF storyline is quite good, quite engaging, and if you don’t want to keep reading after the end of the first chapter, I don’t know what’s wrong with you.  Ghost Planet is a fun, engaging read, and while I know this particular book is a stand-alone, if the author ever returns to this world, I’ll be happy to follow along.

Latest Amazon review . . .

An intriguing blend of idea-driven science fiction and character-driven romance set in a brooding landscape that instantly captures the imagination. Fisher sets the mood for her unusual premise right away and sustains it throughout the book, as her hero and heroine examine questions about what it means to be human and to be "alive".

Readers of paranormal romance or the more action-oriented forms of SF may argue that GHOST PLANET seems a little tentative when it comes to the sex or action, but those are quibbles. There's plenty of room for Fisher's style of contemplative science fiction romance in the broad continuum of speculative literature.
