Do You Qualify for the 2017 Novel of the Year?

July 11, 2016

Review of EPIPHANY MAN by D. B. Patterson

by Anita Lock       Reviewer Rating: 5 Stars      

Patterson’s captivating story draws readers into the fascinating Tarpon Springs. Aside of the factual aspects of this historic place, Patterson does a stellar job keeping his plot light by incorporating fantasy and spirituality to a topic that can be considered rather dismal—dealing with terminal illness and imminent death. A great mix of fact and fiction that is laced with hope and love, Epiphany Man is a perfect read for those looking for a fresh approach to fantasy literature.

Space Werewolves of the Planet Sex (A Message Fiction)

by Steve Wetherell            

Be careful with your politics, because pretty soon you’ve got preachy prose and two-dimensional characters. Clever satire becomes bitter sarcasm. The warm handshake of wit becomes the finger wag of admonishment. Worst of all, it’s a one way ticket to a derailed plot.
