BLURB

Lacy Dawn’s father relives the Gulf War, her mother’s teeth are rotting out, and her best friend is murdered by the meanest daddy on Earth. Life in the hollow is hard. She has one advantage — an android was inserted into her life and is working with her to cure her parents. But, he wants something in exchange. It’s up to her to save the Universe. Lacy Dawn doesn’t mind saving the universe, but her family and friends come first.

Rarity from the Hollow is adult literary science fiction filled with tragedy, comedy and satire.

STORY-LINE GIRL OF GREAT PRICE BY MILO JAMES FOWLER:

Private Investigator Charlie Madison’s, in the thick of things in Girl Of Great Price.  A crime noir set in the future, Madison’s hired to find a young kidnapped Japanese girl.  Knowing if he doesn’t find her within 48 hours, she’ll probably be dead, Madison takes the case.

What Madison finds defies imagination, even in a world run by Russian mobsters and mandroids. My book review of Girl of Great Price follows.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Milo James Fowler‘s short story, Girl of Great Price, reminds the reader of hard-boiled 1940’s television P.I. shows.  However, Madison has heart in a world which destroyed itself with global madness of war and environmental excess.  Milo James Fowler created a hero for a time which needed all the hero’s it could find.

Fowler held the mystery of the girl close to his chest and did not reveal the why, where, what, and when until necessary.  A short read of fifty-one pages, Fowler, packed the pages full of action and suspense.  Fowler’s scenes transitioned smoothly and his writing flowed well.  With fast paced action and an intriguing story-line, devotees of crime noir will love Milo James Fowler‘s Charlie Madison and the Girl of Great Price.  Although not my tea of cup, I can appreciate the skill with which Fowler crafted this story; giving it 4 stars for composition, structure, development, and pacing.
