Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Soulminder by Timothy Zahn

Adrian Sommer had a life changing event on the death of his child.   He dedicated the rest of his life to the memory of his son.   The result was Soulminder that protected the souls of the deceased.

This book rattles a lot of cages.  The premise of souls leads to religious overtones.  The capture of the soul, leads to satanic concerns.   The uses that such a  device can be angelic to demonic.   Much of the book deals with the issues that such a machine could create.   I was reminded of late night philosophic discussions, often fueled by alcohol, while in college. 

Zahn put together a very good book that provides a wealth of thought provoking topics.   This book could keep an avid book club busy for months.

I recommend it.    

I'm always shocked when I find an author without a website, particularly a scifi author, however I could not find one for Zahn.

Facebook: book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
