review Astounding

E isn’t helping He snaps when he receives yet another terrible story submission from the mysterious writer J Harper and in a drunken haze Carter sends Harper a rejection letter he soon regretsJ Harper turns out to be John Harper a sweet man who resembles a ’50s movie star and claims to be an extraterrestrial De. 475Damn you Kim Fielding You made me cry An editor of a dying spec magazine and a guy who says he's an alien I don't know what I expected but this exceeded whatever my meager imagination had lined up It's a trippy little road trip story This story also touches on characters that I love from the Bones and Speechless universe as well as a memorable cameo with the characters from The Tin Box My heart is full
