5.0 de 5 estrelas Another excellent story by Cliff Hays 8 de agosto de 2014
Por Lisa Henderson - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
Another great story by Cliff Hays! This one seems like a natural progression from his excellent nonfiction books on science and philosophy. Here he incorporates his understanding of both fields into a tragic but enlightening account of a budding friendship between two women.

The author skillfully combines his interests in astronomy and philosophy into two characters, a philosopher and a cosmologist. Though they see the world in divergent ways they discover that they have similar aims.

However, their uneasy conversations invite the reader to make comparisons: How are the goals of science and philosophy different? How are they the same? Is one approach right and the other wrong? Can the two coexist comfortably, if at all?

Though the conversations between the women are cordial, a subtle tension runs beneath the surface, yet the outward appearance of harmony makes the climax all the more surprising.

Cliff Hays has demonstrated remarkable creativity in transforming his understanding of two different fields into a fictional union. Thanks to the author for sharing his interests in the philosophical and the astronomical in a way that is so wonderfully clever and memorable.

5.0 de 5 estrelas The Antithesis of Crap! (THAT MEANS IT'S GOOD, DUDE!) (sorry for typing so loudly) 9 de agosto de 2014
Por Magnus Von Black - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
My exposure to short story writers is admittedly limited, as I normally reach for the fat books to go on long excursions, but Cliff Hays has made me a fan of the medium. This story was a fascinating study in contrasts between the logical and the emotional, between the physical and the metaphysical. I was impressed that he could construct passionate and mysterious characters in such a short space, and the ending... well... I should not discuss the ending in any real detail except to say that it was AWESOME.

I haven't read everything from Cliff Hays yet, but every time I grab one of his stories I am left with the realization that I will inevitably end up grabbing all of them.

FULL DISCLOSURE: I met Cliff Hays on Twitter. He read my novel and left a good review. You should know, however, that there is no way in hell I would attach my name to a 5-star review of his work if I thought his work was anything but good and worthy of being read. I refuse to endorse crap, and Cliff Hays' short form writing is the very antithesis of crap. It is bold and weird and complicated, and I love it.

Yours truly,

Magnus Von Black
3.0 de 5 estrelas a little difficult to understand 11 de setembro de 2013

I know I read the book, but I'm not sure I understood it. The author, Cliff Hays, is obviously brilliant, and his idea is fascinating, a search for God using two seemingly apposing view points, but as a reader, I need the basic structure of a story to enjoy it. There's a saying from a writing class I took once, that sums up where this short story went wrong, 'The king died, and then the queen'. This is news. 'The king died, and the queen died of grief'. This is a story. Hays gave us the news.

We need emotions in our characters in order to love/hate them, and while IHU's characters do have emotions, they didn't ring true for me. It felt more like Spock wrote the story than Captain Kirk, if I can use science fiction to get my point across since this story is in the same genre.

If Hays could dumb it down a little, make the characters dysfunctional wrecks, and then the masses can enjoy some of the wonderful ideas that Hays has to share with the world.
5.0 de 5 estrelas Exceptionally Awesome! 20 de setembro de 2014

Best described as a striking blend of the cerebral and phantasmagorical, IHU is yet another exceptional short story by the clever author, Cliff Hays! In the beginning, I was genuinely captivated by the emerging bond between the two characters whose diametric approach towards universal truth did not seem to deter them from shared discourse or friendship. Following their initial meeting, however, surreal and emotionally disturbing events began to transpire. While I was left shaken and stunned by those tragic events leading up to the conclusion, I found myself at the end of the story questioning the very nature and meaning of what I had just read! Seriously, the end is mind-blowing!

So, aside from being a fantastic story filled with multiple contemplation points pertaining to life, death, truth, pain, happiness, etc., I thought IHU served as both an expert and artistic illustration of the harmonies and contrasts that can be found between scientific and philosophical methodologies. Assuredly, IHU has earned its place on my all time sci-fi favorites list and I would like to encourage everyone to read this story because it is so awesome!

5.0 de 5 estrelas Ambitious short story 26 de novembro de 2014
Por Carrie - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle
Philosophy meets astronomy in this ambitious short story. Abstract concepts become more concrete when streamed through the viewpoints of two women, one a philosopher who struggles to reach a state of pure meditation and transcendence, and the other an astronomy professor whose work is her sole purpose in life, though she yearns for motherhood, too. When these two women cross paths, things may never be the same--either for them or the world. An enjoyable, thought-provoking read.
