A New Review

Peter R. Emshwiller, author of Levels: The Host, has written a strong review for my novella, "All Roads Lead To Winter."

"I suppose one could properly classify the work as erotic science fiction, but that doesn't do it justice. It's much more than that. 'Erotic science fiction' brings to mind hackneyed stories of gleaming sex robots and amateur 'Bigfoot & the Bikini Babe' erotic fiction. This is nothing of the sort. It’s a story about loneliness, love, lust, and loss. About both connection and disconnection. Passion and regret... The erotica is masterfully handled, as is the rest of the tale.

"The character of Avdryana... is wonderfully drawn. Smart, sensual, and a bit scary. Like Thomas Bridge (our P.O.V. character) we can’t help but be captivated and charmed by her. Dialogue between the two of them is fun, real, and sharp (one suspects Dillon would do well writing screenplays), the story is peppered with cool details... and the science-fictional and political concepts at the foundation of the tale are quite thought provoking.

"I wanted to live a while longer in the vivid, clearly rendered, haunting world Dillon has created....

"Read it. You won’t be sorry."
