    Get my books FREE Tell me where to send them at bertauskiMy grandpa never graduated high school He retired from a steel mill in the mid 70s He was uneducated, but he was a voracious reader I remember going through his bookshelves of paperback sci fi novels, smelling musty old paper, pulling Piers Anthony and Isaac Asimov off shelf and promising to bring them back I was fascinated by robots that could think and act like people What happened when they died I ve written textbooks on landscape design, but that was straightforward, informational writing the kind of stuff that helps most people get to sleep I ve also been writing a gardening column with a humorous slant That takes a little finesse, but still informational for the most part I m a cynical reader I demand the writer sweep me into his her story and carry me to the end I d rather sail a boat than climb a mountain That s the sort of stuff I wanted to write, not the assigned reading we used to get in high school I wanted to create stories that kept you up late.Fiction, GOOD fiction, is hard to write Having a story unfold inside your head is an experience different than reading You connect with characters in a deeper, meaningful way You feel them, empathize with them, cheer for them and even mourn The challenge is to get the reader to experience the same thing, even if it s only a fraction of what the writer feels Not so easy.

  1. anaslair.wordpress 2016 0When I got this book as a gift from the author s newsletter, it was presented as a prequel.Now a prequel can be defined as noun 1 a literary, dramatic, or filmic work that prefigures a later work, as by portraying the same characters at a younger age.So imagine my surprise when I start reading it and everything, for some reason, sounds familiar I recognized all those stories I enjoyed reading so much from Halfskin 1 There they were interspersed with the main narrative an [...]


  2. I recommend Halfskin series by Tony Bertauski which uses stem cell tech replacing normal cells and shows that some people will do this for gain, athletic advantage or glamour once it s available We see a series of shorts, the vignettes of the title, letting us into the world once the biomites tech has been developed and put into practice Baseball playing kids are souped up illegally while still growing, students attend clandestine parties where they become prettier if the biomites work properly [...]

  4. This taster has been on my shelf for a while now, so I thought I would indulge in some reality based Sci Fi There are several short stories within this book, all based around the idea of Stem Cell upgrades to boost the human body in many ways Fighting illness, learning skills etc There is a nice balance between the ethics of carrying out procedures and the reasons for doing so, and also the greed and corruption that ultimately becomes prevalent from abusing this new technology The fascinating th [...]


  5. This as it states is a short story book, it has several mini tales which were taken from the Halfskin series I received this e book free after subscribing to the author s newsletter.Even though I hadn t read any of the Halfskin series of books I enjoyed this little taster of the author s work.It was intriguing and its the kind of thing that makes you think after you ve read it , I like that a lot.


  6. Interest ring conceptI received this book for free and requested to review it I found the idea that this book is based on a interesting concept, as well as a complete possibility I will get the next novel and see how that one goes.


  7. a very interesting idea to be raised however, i found some of these vignettes to not be making much sense, as if they were torn out of a bigger picture, and perhaps they were otherwise, it s a good read, indeed with all the ethical issues and repercussions.



  8. Got this as some giveaway at some point or directed to here when free Writes in a genre or genres likely hard to pin down so just look at his works is all can really say beyond the stars rating from me Came to my attention when got to do ARC for Humbug Date is off, forgot to review some of his.


  9. Author Tony Bertauski is a master of what ifs, and the vignettes in Halfskin blend together scarily into a what if world where the greatest technological advance was in biological chips rather than silicone But Bertauski s worlds are never simple, and his questions, like those of George Orwell or Philip Dick, leave the reader with much to ponder What makes us human What makes us fast, or clever, or gives us personality And what s left if too much of the brain and body are fabricated instead of b [...]


  10. I downloaded this book for free today after seeing the Boxset advertised on Twitter I would call this a series of short interlinked stories based on the idea that new nanotechnology has enabled human beings to eradicate illness via the use of synthetic cells The twist comes by the fact the cells start to take on a life of their ownI read the collection in a couple of hours and liked the way the different stories came together in the last account It was like reading a futuristic diary.Overall, I [...]


  11. Interesting ReadThis book was intellectually interesting and made me think The writing style is unique in a positive way The only downside to this novel is the length seemed short and the characters, although fascinating, didn t have lasting substance to them Their individual stories were short lived.Still, the concepts of advanced technology and the reactions of various characters made this well worth reading I would definitely read on in this series.


  12. This is a collection of the short vignettes interspersed through the trilogy with at least one extra that seems not to have made it into the books and possibly one missed out Useful snippets that make sense of the general thread in the books the need for regulation of biomite use and ethical considerations in sport and intellectual competitions such as spelling bees the concept of humanity and the use of the halfskin brick categories.


  13. What is he Drayton is ancient, he isn t human and doesn t exist, yet he is there.I found this a sweet and compelling story It is a glimpse of a strange character that left me with many questions.


  14. .halfskin a full human read an excellent look at one authors take on the future of a connected society and the moral.cial.d ethical dilemas that come W scientific advancements


  15. I love the way Bertauski writes That said, I did not get some of these stories I guess I need details most ended too soon Also I don t get how the nanites influence your dreams Maybe the full length stories will not be so abrupt.


  16. Science fiction of the biology sort Mankind has the ability to make himself perfect But what does that mean about his humanity If he s 51% machine, is he still a human Interesting topic, but I don t think I will continue with the series.
