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.

Oil to Ashes Picnic (1) by Lee Brait

This is a novelette set in a not to distant future.  Linc is a company man with a mind of his own.  He believes in the company's goal but feels he is surrounded by dilettantes.  This short story appears to be a setup for a sequential story line.   Linc follows his conscience and ends up doing the right thing but paying for it in guilt.

The story is fast paced and in some areas brutal.  The realization that to protect his family, Linc must do some things that grossly breach his self image.  You feel that society and it's failures lead to personal actions that would be abhorrent in another time and place but are necessary in this declining society.

Premise is good, plenty of action and thought provoking analysis of social mores.

I enjoyed the book.

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