Dog-Eared Review: Empty Space

Click to read more about Melanie.

By Melanie Tighe –

I’ve been a fan of local and bestselling sci-fi writer Alan Black for years, and his newest release, Empty Space, doesn’t disappoint. I think the best way to describe this novel would be Dexter meets Deep Space Nine. I found myself rooting for Black’s well-written character, York Sixteen, all the way through the story, despite his chilling psychological flaws.

Things really get interesting when York is stationed on  the loneliest space station in Republic Space. Where does a judicious serial killer find his victims, when there’s no one around who deserves his special brand of justice?

Signed copies of Empty Space are available at Dog-Eared Pages bookstore in Phoenix.
