    Imagine you are Brad Torgersen.You write a sci fi story You ve been doing this a while, so you know how It s got at least two separate cool ideas in it The first one is an eco disaster that is caused by aliens instead of human error You don t need to milk an environmental sob story to have a global catastrophe The second cool idea is having the humans survive by basing themselves off an ocean floor heat vent ecosystem instead of a land based solar ecosystem Then you take a step back You figure how this kind of catastrophe would affect people sociologically So far so good.Next, you bring in your guy, Max He s a real hero, not one of these weepy antiheroes He s a dad He s got a teenaged daughter, and he s her pillar of strength He s also awesome at his job and he doesn t take any crap from the other guys on the ocean floor When the trouble starts, he knows what to do No shilly shallying, no internal conflict Max is a Man of Action.It s a solid story People like it You get nominated for a Hugo Cool You re finally getting some respect But what happens You lose the Hugo to some piece of hipster crap called Six Months, Three Days It s barely Sci Fi It s mostly people talking about relationships Screw that So you join up with Larry Correia s Sad Puppies gro...

    The most human story I ve read in a very long time Brad Torgersen uses very realistic family relationships in his stories, which help me connect with his characters right away In Ray of Light, Torgersen s uncaring aliens contrast with the protagonist s concern for his teenage daughter Since I have two of those Bam He got me right there The teenagers attitudes to...

    Similar in theme to Ray Bradbury s All Summer In A Day But where All Summer s main character looks foraward to seeing the sun and doesn t get to, Torgersen writes of a people who have given up hope of ever seeing the sun again, and then see it in the end I like the fact that youngsters who either have never seen the sun or are too young to remember it are th...

    Read as part of the 2012 Hugo Voter Packet.A fascinating tale of Max and Jenna s his daughter life in the deep water habitats where the surviving ten percent of humanity attempts to survive following alien caused freezing of the entire Earth s surface A great combination of characterisation how Max deals with the new life, and how Jenna is raised in an environment where she s never seen the sun, but only heard about it and plot Max heads off in a sub to try and lo...

    Solid enough eco disaster story, although unusually the disaster is inflicted on humanity by aliens whose motive is never explained rather than being self inflicted But this is kind of an interesting change It has flaws, though plot holes, and bits where the story scaffolding shows through The lack of any human agency in the disaster also renders the whole thing a bit one dimensional this is a story only concerned with human survival and spi...

    Reviewed as part of the 2012 Hugo Voter Packet.Aliens come and effectively dim the sun leaving Earth in a major ice age, and mankind retreats to the bottom of the ocean near thermal vents to survive.The implications of the ecological disaster that sets...

    Definitely an interesting story about hope and the human condition staged in a post apocalyptic world where the sun is blocked by alien installed mirrors in the Earth s atmosphere Again, Torgersen is able to paint a realistic, thought provoking view of the human condi...

    This is a post apocalyptic story where humanity is forced to live beneath the ocean to survive the complete glaciation of the surface after aliens block the sun The plot focuses on a former astronaut searching for his runaway daughter and the serendipitous discovery they make in the proc...

    Aliens mysteriously dimmed the sun s light, causing the last human survivors to hide deep under the frozen oceans, depending on geothermal energy Nice idea, but the execution, concentrating on a dad s looking for his rebellious and wayward daughter, a ...
