Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.

Mercury Swings

Mercury Swings - Robert Kroese A short, funny story featuring the wisecracking, free-spirited angel Mercury, who here is correcting a time anomaly. Mercury finds a saxophone player blasting out very good jazz music in an ancient world cave club, but according to the divine plan jazz isn't scheduled to come into existence for more than 3,000 years. If this story is your first and only introduction to the Mercury series you may find it clever and funny, but not worth a book length expansion. Not true. Though Mercury Swings only has room to be an extended joke, Mercury Falls is a lot richer, addressing issues of free will and end time politics while still maintaining the clever wit found in this story.Free for Kindle on Amazon.
