Riding the Stream Again | Prisoner by Dennis W. Green

Riding the Stream Again | Prisoner by Dennis W. Green

Back in 2013, I met Dennis at the local science fiction and fantasy convention. After attending his reading, I purchased his first book Traveler, devoured it and have been shouting my love for the book since my first review here on Second Run Reviews. At last year’s ICON, I was thrilled to learn that Traveler would have sequel, Prisoner and was treated to a preview chapter during a late night author reading. I would doubly thrilled when Dennis offered me an eARC of Prisoner earlier this summer. For those of you who have read Traveler, you are in for another wild ride when you pick up Prisoner. Trav Becker and all his doubles are back at it shifting through parallel realities and trying to save the universe. Prisoner moved at a faster pace than Traveler; gone are the interludes. The reader isn’t “forced” to take a break from the action. You are able to read as fast as your eyes and mind can process the words on the page. While Prisoner‘s plot moves at break neck speed, the writing has a more relaxed feel. Trav is in even more trouble with the FBI looking over his shoulder and the stakes […]

Book Release: Travelers & Shifters & Fey, Oh My!

Book Release: Travelers & Shifters & Fey, Oh My!

Buy it on Amazon Add it on GoodReadsToday’s I’m welcoming three Iowa authors, A.R. Miller, Rachel Eliason and Dennis Green, to Second Run Reviews. They’ve joined together to bring the first three books of each of their individual series together in a single package. The Making of Travelers & Shifters & Fey by A.R. Miller A DJ, a hairdresser, and an LGBT activist walk into a sci-fi convention… That’s not the beginning to a joke, it’s how three writers became friends and collaborators. When Rachel Eliason approached me about doing a box set, yes rolled off my tongue without a thought. Then it hit me, we need at least one more book to round out the set. Who could we entice to join us? That answer was pretty easy too, as both Rachel and I said simultaneously, “Dennis Green.” We first met Dennis at an Iowa author signing at DemiCon. Then the three of us hosted a panel at ICON 39 discussing urban fantasy, and we discovered that even though our backgrounds were wildly different, we had a lot in common. And so do our books. Each of our books deal with how people who think of themselves as normal, […]

Crime Fiction, Science Fiction or Both? | Traveler by Dennis W. Green

Crime Fiction, Science Fiction or Both? | Traveler by Dennis W. Green

Traveler is a science fiction mystery novel. Travis (Trav) Becker has the ability to travel between parallel universes and it turns out another version of himself is hunting down the other versions of himself. Of course, the big question is, Why? Sounds complicated, right? Well, it is, but it isn’t. Green has great skill in laying out a complicated plot in a fashion that intrigues you and keeps you wanting to know what’s going to happen next. Even though he introduces several different versions of each of the characters, you can easily follow which version (or versions) you are encountering. Also, the science behind the travel between universes is neatly explained and for someone who isn’t a hardcore science fiction geek (and who loves time travel plots, but is just as easily confused by them), I understood it and was able to easily explain it to my husband.* The only thing I wasn’t keen on were the interludes. The Interludes just seemed to pop up out of no where and did not seem to have a connection with the portion of the book I just finished reading. The Burton Tupper Interlude (page 87) was the most jarring to me. I […]
