My favorite short from Cameron Cooper so far! Wow is there a lot packed into this short story, and that twist! Cooper masterfully draws you into this richly imagined world and down what seems a familiar path only pull out surprise twists in the most delightful way. Drama, suspense, and an absolutely rewarding conclusion.

Mind Twisting

This is such a cool story! The story starts out rather normal and suddenly makes a hard left into the fantastic. It's thought-provoking and intriguing and just plain great. I loved it!

I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book and can definitely recommend it to anyone who loves an excellent story.

Ohhhhh, wowser! What an epic tale in a short story!

I loved this short story which had truths relevant to our own current lives just as much as in the SciFi setting depicted. The concept of a cloak/body that you borrow creates a fantastic vehicle for exploring the concept of confidence and your own sense of self worth. The characters were brought to life by Cameron Cooper's succinct writing style as much as the weird and wonderful other-worldly setting.

So much was conveyed in a short interaction that it spins my brain to keep thinking of it!  I really enjoy an intriguing sci-fi short story like this with an encompassing conclusion that gets you thinking rather than confusing you.

McCrumm gave a grunt of satisfaction as the three drones lifted up into the air, then took up their assigned positions. One on Fenne, one on Vestri and the third roaming at mid-distance. McCrumm nodded at Fenne and Vestri, sealed up the duffel bag and left.

When the door shut behind the corpulent technician, Vestri waved toward the desk. “Shall we?”

Fenne settled on one of the visitor chairs and her drone buzzed into place. She flipped her strawberry blonde hair back behind her shoulders.

Vestri didn’t head behind the desk. He sat on the front edge of it, on the other end from Fenne’s chair and spread his feet in a casual pose.

Fenne crossed her legs and wrapped her hands around the upper knee. “Your corporation recently celebrated its twentieth anniversary, which we heard about all the way to Datu. Congratulations on that milestone.”

“Thank you. Datu is part of the Republic, yes?”

“You know it?” Fenne raised a brow.

“By reputation only. I have datufruit every day at lunch.”

“Have you ever visited the Republic?”

“Alas, no.”

Fenne gave a tight smile. “But you are a successful man. You haven’t been tempted to slip into the Republic and indulge yourself with a day cloak or more?”

“A Total Visage cloak?” Vestri laughed. “I admit some curiosity. Associates and business contacts tell me about their experiences and I certainly could afford it, but I’m simply too busy here.” He paused. “I’m told they’re quite ugly, that people sidestep when a cloak comes near.”

“The Visage bodies have tattoos on the neck,” Fenne said, “so that everyone knows they’re dealing with someone wearing a cloak. In all other respects, they’re identical to normal humans. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be any point in wearing one.”
