one book, twelve short stories, five stars.

Brad Watson is known for his flawless character development. That's just one of the many reasons why I was anticipating his latest novella, Aliens in the Prime of Their Lives: Stories. You may not realize right away how exceptional these characters are, they appear to be just like the rest of us; a hot tempered couple, a single mother, the products of broken homes. They are relatable, but you will soon discover how rare and special they are.

Watson has compiled twelve stories in this collection, each reflecting a unique voice. I really enjoy this compilation of short stories, especially with my busy schedule. I can pick it up whenever I have the time to read one. And yes, there are aliens.
