“What if they made the world they want instead?”

My review of Joe Hill’s powerful science fiction novella Gunpowder is now available at Dark Scribe Magazine.

I’m not usually a sci-fi fan, but this one is a keeper. Mainly because Hill knows what lots of sci-fi writers don’t – it doesn’t matter how neat the tech is if the characters aren’t worth a damn. This is story first, setting second, and that’s why it is so good. Hill has hinted this might become a series, and I hope it does.
