Review of ‘When the Stars are Right’

Posted on Updated on

The military is agog over a new form of energy, and plan to use it for space ship propulsion. But, why do they need an exorcist aboard the ship as it prepares for its maiden voyage?

Read William Meikle’s short story, When the Stars are Right, and find out. A chilling story of adventure and paranormal phenomena that involves religion, politics, power plays, and ritual magic that sneaks up on you before you know what hit you.

Meikle’s story has only one flaw in my opinion—it ended too soon. I was just getting into it when his ending, though excellently crafted, came at me out of the blue. I give Meikles five stars for this super story.
