Review of The Golem of Deneb Seven by Alex Shvartsman
In the interests of full disclosure, I was sent an ARC of this book by the publisher for review purposes. All my reviews, good, bad, or indifferent, are based on my own opinion and from my personal viewpoint. They are also spoiler free.
The Golem of Deneb Seven is a home run for Alex Shvartsman. This anthology of his own short stories will make you think, laugh, cry, and even groan on occasion. With each story changing moods and styles, you will be entertained in multiple ways.
I highly recommend you read this book.
Keep reading for a few thoughts on the individual stories (although a few of the titles may be longer than the thoughts).
