Retirement. Publishers, thank you for the many years of reading pleasure you gave me, but all good things must come to an end. Due to failing eyesight I am forced to retire. I can no longer review your books, and any that you send will be donated to the local library, unread. Do not send any more. I can only read for a couple hours every day, and this does not allow me to finish a book in reasonable time. I will be devoting time to my own books from now on, and reading on a personal level. Books that interest me. I prefer paperbacks and hardbacks, not eBooks. My eyesight has been failing the last few years, and I cannot handle hundreds of review books any more. My books are still available for review. Anyone interested in reviewing any of them, they are found in the Link to Tom’s Books On Amazon. Contact me for pdf copies at

On the far side of the universe is an asteroid occupied by a fascinating group of odd individuals of different alien races. It is an outpost of sorts, at the edge of civilization. The novel is a round robin of different authors taking part in telling a portion of the story as a whole; a story of every day life on the Rock. Like Babylon 5, we are pulled into the tale and don’t want to leave. Stuck on a world where they must live and work underground, most have only one great desire – to leave to Rock.

The story has no true beginning or ending, as it’s intended as a continuing series featuring numerous episodes on the Rock. I was fascinated by the characters and writing, and was surprised the series did not continue past this one book. The characters are three-dimensional; some that we may love and some we may hate, but the authors are at their story-telling best, and the Rock is one marvelous place to keep the readers entertained. The book is a steal at this low price. Highly recommended for readers of SF adventure novels, and fans of shows like Babylon 5.
