thumb
Standard Candles (1996)
Jack McDevitt
"In both his novels and his short fiction, Jack McDevitt has shown a terrific range of skills and imagination and speculation. Only one thing remains the same from piece to piece to piece - they're all damn fine stories."

Janet Berliner
"Children of the Dusk is a highly unusual and frightening depiction of a little-known aspect of the Holocaust."

Lamentation (2009)
(Psalms of Isaak, book 1)
Ken Scholes
