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 […]

Exclusive Alternate Scene from Traveler by Dennis W. Green

Exclusive Alternate Scene from Traveler by Dennis W. Green

A Word from Dennis W. Green As a guy whose day job is about jazz music, “Lagniappe” is a word I’ve come across many times. It’s of Creole origin and means “bonus,” or “a little something extra.” The following is based on my original concept of the ending of Traveler. But it was pretty bleak, and eventually I decided I preferred something slightly more upbeat. But the Traveler saga is about parallel realities, and as I worked on the sequel, it occurred to me that this scene could still fit into the tale. You can enjoy this vignette now as an alternate ending for Traveler. But in Prisoner, you’ll get to see how it also fills out a part of the main story that takes place offstage. Or maybe I’m just to lazy to ever let a scene go to waste. A Little Lagniappe for Second Run Reviews   A Quick Review A Review Sneak Peek: 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, […]

True to his word, Trav Becker has retired from dimension-hopping and settled into a normal life. At least, as normal as the life of a police detective can get.
