My reviews of Three Tales of the USAians and Three Fantastic Surprises by Sarah Hoyt
Three short stories that have appeared on the author’s blog, According to Hoyt, all dealing with the concept of fighting for the ideals laid out in the founding documents of the USA.
It Came Upon a Midnight Clear (2014)
The Bombs Bursting In Air (2015)
On a Far Distant Shore (2015)
Three great little stories of a dystopian future where the ideals of the USA have been largely outlawed and forced underground. I very much enjoyed them.
It Came Upon a Midnight Clear is about a young boy and his sister escaping from government forces as they crack down on the members of a movement who believe in Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. 5 stars
The Bombs Bursting in Air involves an agent of the state who’s been betrayed and begins to learn the true meaning of freedom and that half heard references are often completely off base. 5 stars
On a Far Distant Shore is a story of redemption and willingness to sacrifice to do what needs to be done for the good of all. 5 stars
