    Phil Stern is the author of both Contemporary and Science Fiction.His debut novel, The Bull Years, was published in 2011 A hard hitting commentary on both the frustrations and ultimate validation of modern day life, The Bull Years follows the lives of four people throughout the late 80 s, 90 s, and into the 21st century, directly addressing the gradual alienation and disconnection often experienced during young adulthood I wanted to write about characters everyone could relate to, Stern says We ve all had our ups and downs I think people sometimes feel everyone else has experienced success than they have, or are firmly grounded in our world than they could ever be My hope is that everyone will recognize a little part of themselves in Steve, Sophia, Dave, and Brooke Born in 1970 in Ossining, New York, Stern grew up with a love of all types of science fiction, including the works of Robert Heinlein, Anne McCaffrey, John Wyndham, Piers Anthony, and Speculative fiction is so different today than it was back then, Stern says I wanted to write stuff a bit recognizable to fans of my generation Science fiction should be about ideas and alternate worlds, strong characters and good stories.Going into talk radio after attending SUNY Albany, Stern hosted regular shows in the New York City area, Albany, Utica, NY, and Greenville, NC He later went into the advertising and sales industries.Stern now lives in Florida, and is working on his next novel.Email philstern30 Website Book Review This book reminded me somewhat of The Lottery only with the exact opposite outcome Imagine growing up with Earth as ancient history, almost mythical, in concept Then, imagine having one day a year that you can bring back one loved one who passed in the last three years Having lost several loved ones, I m not sure if I would bring them back As much as I would like to have them back, I m not sure it would be a good thing.This book explores that concept It is very interesting It s a unique concept and exposes all those little secrets people have that others don t know The story draws you in It wasn t until halfway through the book that I even realized they were talking about a different planet Unique story and I really enjoyed the concept.I give this 4 out of 5 clouds.

    On a frontier planet, there exists an unique set of conditions that allow one person to be brought back from the dead The only conditions are that it can only work on one particular day each year Also, the person being brought back can not have been dead than 3 years Each year , the families of the candidates plead their cases in front of the church before the people vote on whom to bring back The choice this year just might end up destroying the community.This short story is very much a character driven story Its focus is on how the people react to the situation instead of the situation itself I did find the explanation for the situation interesting though Hearing the set up, I could not easily imagine how this was a sci fi story and not a fantasy But the explanation does work The story will make the reader question how they would react in this situation It reminded me of the short story called The Lottery, just in reverse.
