The revised, e-book edition of the entertaining and astute anthology. Preluding an epic adventure, six short stories highlight the Galactic Federation of Mars as the superpower of the future and showcase life under its rule. Collectively, the stories reveal an adversity of the imagination with a looming alien invasion. Includes 28 illustrations.

Kelly B. Johnson, the author of Skies Over Tomorrow: Constellation is a phenomenal talent whose work is not to be missed. Exciting anthologies are hard to come by these days but Skies Over Tomorrow is one that stands out amongst the genre for me thanks to its original and gripping stories that kept me reading for many nights, and that is why I would have to implore you lovely readers to read this incredible book!

Skies Over Tomorrow: Constellation is a collection of six short stories all revolving around the genre of science fiction. The stories throughout this book are incredible, and each one is different, and original from the last which is what I love to see in an anthology. All stories, no matter how original they are, are all based around the Galatic Federation of Mars… yes, Mars! These stories are based around Mars and being a slight geek, this sent me into pure heaven as I love to read about the universe and the planets in it. The stories are fantastic and incredibly well written with excellent prose and engrossing characters. I have to mention too that Skies Over Tomorrow has a theme of an imminent alien invasion and again, this excited me as this is a topic I am fascinated in! So if you are a reader who adores science fiction, space, Mars and aliens then well, this is the perfect book for you!

The stories written in Skies Over Tomorrow are brilliant, and my two favorites were The Mars Conspiracy and The Encounter. All stories in this book were exceptional, and I will struggle to forget them for a long time, but for me, these two stories stood out thanks to the fast-paced action and gripping narrative that had me frantic.

The author, Kelly B. Johnson is one that has to be praised for his effortless ability to build a unique world in the matter of a few stories. Writing science fiction is difficult, but a short science fiction anthology is even harder so already Johnson has my admiration. It is difficult to write an anthology because the reader has to be captivated and drawn in very quickly and this can only be done with a vast scope of the world which will send readers minds into overdrive. Johnson most certainly captivates his readers, and he fascinated me with his well-developed world, thrilling narrative, unique characters and stunning science fiction.

As Skies Over Tomorrow: Constellation is a gripping, enthralling and captivating story I have no choice but to award this book a dazzling Five Stars! So please, if you are a reader who is captivated by science fiction and adore short stories then you must read this book as you will not regret it!

Aimee Ann, thank you for reviewing Skies Over Tomorrow: Constellation. Your commentary leaves me flattered and proud of the effort to do the title justice.

Just a little history of the book… The original version was published as Skies Over Tomorrow in 2004 (after a long gestation period since 1993–at least for three of the six shorts presented). Divorcing a year later, I was not able to sustain learning how to market a book as to really establish myself as a self-publisher. (I did learn that marketing is a critical hat to wear as one.) The situation with my failed marriage had been that I had to step up and provide for my children, as to give them the stability, structure and support and opportunities that they deserved–that every child deserves. So single-parenthood moved me into a ten-year hiatus from writing and drawing. Of course any experienced parent learns\knows that as children get older, raising them becomes easier (relatively speaking), and so as my children grew to be more responsible for themselves, I had time to return to my passions. Thus the revision as Skies Over Tomorrow: Constellation.

Picking up where I left off–so to speak–I am currently producing a very short animation for Of Lords and Ladies–my personal favorite. The project is to study\learn animation and promote the story and thus the book. It should be done within a week or so and can be viewed at http://www.facebook.com/chaosstudio7 and the Instagram link above. (Please like and share, everyone!)

Well, I just can’t stress enough how pleased I am with this review, Aimee Ann. I invite all of your readers to check out Skies Over Tomorrow: Constellation, as I am confident there is a story that will speak to them–if not the whole book. I believe in this anthology just that much, especially given its stories were written to be relevant to all of humanity. For anyone that does buy into Skies Over Tomorrow: Constellation, I welcome your comments and critiques and questions.

Thank you again, Aimee Ann.

P.S.
During my hiatus, I kept creative through cooking, learning HTML (as to code a website for my writings\drawings) and my verses, or poems that I feel captures my life through life experiences–both directly and indirectly. You\your readers can read those here: http://www.chaosstudio7.com/verses.
