Welcome Home

This was an excellent read! It was like watching a modern, low-key Horror movie, but in words! The banter between Asher & Bastian is realistic, & the situational-plot just as real. The progressive treatment of the relationship between the protagonists is a PLUS!

My only suggestion is to write from only one Point of View--either First Person or Third, in "Welcome Home"'s case... Honestly, one of the best pieces I've read on Inkitt!

The Creature Seers Guide Volume 1

Love this concept! Reminds me of SciFi & Fantasy fandom publications of characters & the worlds they live in that details powers, abilities, and narratives! If you like ancient folklore & history--especially ranging from superstitious tales from antiquities to modern urban legends, you'll want to check this ebook out by CL Brierley!

I would recommend attributions, footnotes, for literary sources--just as Brierley did for her images. Plus, a bit more detail with each category of "Creatures."

400 Days In The Apocalypse

CL Brierley brings a unique approach to the zombie sub-genre. Without spoils, here, Brierley's protagonist, Josie, is a natural, sympathetic character, but don't let that fool you about Jose. She knows how to deal with the apocalypse!

It seems Brierley uses the zombie-tale as a commentary of this wretched year of 2020, with the Coronavirus pandemic--wistful of a lost world that we've all taken for granted.

I say this as one who's, honestly, not into the zombie-genre, Brierley's 400 Days makes you take stock of how you complain about your own life!

After the Borg

I really like the premise for After the Borg by bunnyears. Those of us who are Star Trek fans, most of us have seen those episode of the Next Generation of the ST series: ol' Captain Jean-Luc Picard, always of control of his emotions--almost to the degree of a Vulcan! But after being captured and assimilated by the Borg, that veneer had been tarnished...
This piece, what I personally call a prose, takes that angle! I would have liked to see a deeper dive into Picard's emotional-state--perhaps dealing with some unspoken fears, loves, and other psychological vulnerabilities being captured by the Borg must have done to Captain Picard. Perhaps author bunnyears might follow-up; maybe even a short story or novella?

"Winds of Aerathiea"

I've always loved Steampunk sub-genre, so "Winds of Aerathiea" was a treat to read about how a crew could actually use an airship in contemporary times! Which, by the way, was a challenge of any plot that takes place in contemporary times--and author T.E. Adams came up with a good, & logical premise for such "Skycruisers."
On Inkitt ebook reviews, I make sure NOT to spoil, so let's just say that Adams application of a popular sub-genre like Post-Apocalypse America had a refreshing twist & was key to the logic of having that Steampunk airship in the story.
Adams' treatment of the characters was very humane. I do remember from Composition classes that quotation marks at the end of sentences should be: Oh, So-and-So said, I like your money "problems." as an example. Good job!

Tracer

I don't know the age of the author, Michael Cassata, but I'm guessing he's young; maybe around 18 to 20 years old? But the "mechanics" of his grammar are excellent!

Being a published SciFi author myself, I'm biased for ANYTHING SciFi to Paranormal-related. I really like the fact that Tracer is taking on a very mature & global issue of Privacy in modern times; & how Cassata used the protagonist to deal with it, especially from a Millennial's point of view!
Only thing I would suggest is perhaps a little more narrative for the setting of the story & a little bit on the major characters (eg, "government guy"...what agency is "he" from?). Otherwise, good job!

"Coming Together"

ABSOLUTELY gripping tale, from the vantage point of FN-2187 (Finn)! Without spoiling, it's a very good story that helps Star Wars fans "fill in the blanks" about FN-2187's obvious incongruent life as a Stormtrooper in the Galactic First Order...good job!
