On My Nightstand - The Superlative Stream by Kerry Nietz & Giveaway

Author Kerry Nietz launched his much-anticipated second book in the Dark Trench series, "The Superlative Stream." To fully appreciate this volume, it would be helpful, but not imperative, that you read, "A Star Curiously Singing."

Sandfly, a fixer of all things robotic, and his female companion, Hard Candy, embark on a search for The Superlative Stream. They look for a new way of life, one promising freedom from the severe mind control of earth's regime.

The previous Dark Trench crew encountered strange things in the Betelgeuse system, but nothing compared to what Sandfly and Hardy Candy discover. Are the planet and civilization the source of the Superlative Stream? Or is it another cosmic dead end?

Kerry brings the main characters through a thought process that's both natural and believable. Their relationship, previously foreign and forbidden, provides an interesting story element.

This sounds like a book you could have written, my dear! Isn't this considered speculative fiction?

Sounds great; please enter my name!

Thanks and love,

Hi Kristen -

I'm sure Kerry will be happy to learn you're enjoying his first book. You'll definitely want the second one.

Hi Jen -

Kerry's book is considered Christian Sci-Fi. I prefer to view mine as Christian Futuristic Fiction. I'm firmly rooted on planet earth. :)


Diane said...

You read a Sci-fi Susan! Hope you enjoyed it. I haven't gotten to the ones you gave me yet. Hope you have a great week! :O)

Patti Lacy said...

Did enjoy the concept of Kerry's "A Star Curiously Singing" and pray that God guides him in his career!

Would love to share a second of his books with another reader!

So...enter me!!


Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Diane -

I read very little Sci-Fi. Kerry convinced me to give his first book a try, and I enjoyed it. Naturally, I had to see what happened to Sandfly next. :)

Hi Patti -

Sounds like a very interesting read!

I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your comment over @ Life Lessons! Loved your synopsis of my post! In spite of very different circumstances, each hero ended well, having fulfilled the individual calling God had placed on his/her life! Glad to be striving together with you to bring honor and glory to Him! Have a blessed day!

Kerry Nietz said...
