Review of Seeds of Foreverland

Review of Seeds of Foreverland

This short story follows the childhood of Harold, the main villain in the Annihilation of Foreverland. It is a great little novella showing the messed-up mind of a psychopath, and the back story to how the virtual world/brain technology was created. It was a good page-turner.

This book is a dark, depressing tale with the psychotic Radian order committing genocide on the Elorians and lots and lots of the same rhetoric about worms and nightcrawlers, etc.  Things go from worse to worst to completely utterly worst.
