A 'VERSE FULL OF SCUM

Not seeing it

By Sonja Nitschke, editor

Aug 14, 2008: I read all six volumes that are currently posted.

The writing is good: sharp, clear, and concise. I’m having a bit of trouble relating to the narrator, though, and I’m not sure why.

I just don’t really care about him. I don’t care if he succeeds in capturing his bounty or if he fails. It’s written in first person so I find this a little surprising, and I’m having trouble putting my finger on why I feel so neutral towards him.

I’m also having difficulty envisioning the world this takes place. I can tell it’s science fiction, but it doesn’t feel like science fiction to me.

The story has direction, but it lacks drive.

Perhaps it is simply not my cup of tea.
