REVIEW: Sark, a sci-fi novella by Steve Price.Posted: January 5, 2014
While I enjoyed the cosmolocusts eating motherplanetship Narcoma and the ensuing flight and adventures in Turmoil Space, the story seemed too derivative of Arthur C. Clarke’s 2001 with Sark being a non-evil variety of HAL, and Turmoil Space on a par with Douglas Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
I didn’t read the Kindle edition, but I was provided a PDF by the author, which made for cumbersome reading on my iPad. I was unable to highlight the various editing errors, but the story would benefit from additional proofreading/editing.
Recommended to fans of Douglas Adams/Terry Pratchett.
