Review -Burnt Lake

Burnt Lake
by Micheal Brown

Available at Amazon http://amzn.to/ym8USD 
Burnt Lake

I have to preface this review with the fact that although I use to read a lot of science fiction in my teens, somewhere along the line I lost most of my interest in it. However a good apocalypse story can really peak my interest as this story does.
Burnt Lake is a short story about Mike who wants to be prepared in case he ever needs survivalist techniques. Mike is a tech junkie, a programmer but he prefers the wilderness to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. He goes into the wilderness of northern Ontario, to try out his survivalist techniques and while he is sleeping he is transported into a nightmarish future with no technology and man struggling to exist without it.  I don’t want to give too much away about the story so I’ll stop there. Mr. Brown certainly weaves an interesting story although it does take some patience to get to the bones of the story. I’d love to see a revisit to this story by this author of a longer nature and more of Amanda and Rain, but I feel this story is an interesting and compelling read of a future that could very well happen. This writer shows a lot of promise for future offerings from this author.

3 1/2 stars  out of five
