    1. I have really enjoyed each of the four previous anthologies in the 'Gothika' series so when I realized the fifth installment was going to revolve around science fiction, I was more than stoked. The science fiction genre is one I have loved since I was a little kid and any chance to read it is always a good thing! With that said, this fifth installment was mesmerizing and kept me glued to the pages.Abducted by Jamie FessendenI vividly remember the first time I stood in line at the grocery store w [...]

    3. A Joyfully Jay review. 4 starsContact is the latest installment in the Gothika series of anthologies, focusing on close encounters of the third-kind. Three of the four stories revolve around burgeoning intergalactic romance and the fourth centers on a pair of lovers dealing with the knowledge that humans are not alone.In general, I really enjoyed the first three stories. The final one felt less compelling to me in comparison. One of the biggest differences is that the final story doesn’t align [...]

    4. This is volume 5 in the Gothika series. Each volume contains stand-alone novellas on a particular theme, so you can enjoy any of the volumes without having read the others. And this time we have aliens! I've so enjoyed writing the stories in this series, and I'm so proud to be in such good authorial company!

    6. 4.5 Stars ~ This latest Gothika anthology deals with stories of the extraterrestrial kind, and features four authors: Kim Fielding, F.E. Feeley JrJamie Fessenden, and B.G. Thomas. While all have a similar theme—contact with alien life—all the stories are vastly different and overall, the authors did a great job writing characters that were both interesting and believable. The anthology itself dwells less on the scarier elements of alien life and more on the idea that there is intelligence ou [...]

    7. See bottom of my review for the blurbs for each individual story, as they aren't up on the main book blurb here.After really enjoying the previous Gothika anthologies, I was looking forward to this one, especially as the theme is aliens! I love sci-fi and am always on the look out for good stories in this genre. however, I'm a bit disappointed with this one.Abducted, by Jamie Fessenden This was a pretty fun story and the one I started with out of the four shorts. It started off as a pretty typic [...]

    8. hmm, a very solid collection of stories. I actually *really* liked all of them except for the last one. Unfortunately it was also the longest, and I ended up just skimming through it. But I checked this out from hoopla, so no great loss. The first story was really cool. I think I might need more gay alien stories in my life now? Kim Fielding, as always, you rocked it. SO much tenderness and emotional connection in just a few thousand words. You're a genius.

    10. Aliens. Travelers from outer space. Others. Typically I avoid these stories – they’re just not my interest. But these stories are amazing! (All the covers for this series have been amazing but isn’t this one just GORGEOUS?!)Refugee by Kim FieldingBlurbWhen World War II ended and army medic Walter Clark returned to Chicago, he discovered that although home remained the same, he had changed. Unable to fit comfortably into his old life, he spent a year gradually making his way west. Now he’ [...]

    11. Abducted by Jamie Fessenden - 5 starsRefugee by Kim Fielding - 5 starsMy Final Blog by F.E. Feeley, Jr. - 1 starUnusual Attention by B.G. Thomas - 1 starWow, such a huge discrepancy between the first half and the second half of these stories. The first two were amazing, just what I wanted from this book. I liked the setting and the developing romance in both of them. "Abducted" had a really nice touch of suspence, especially. Unfortunately the third story was missing the romance for me, the whol [...]

    12. Each short story sticks to the theme but they all have their own unique take on ‘Contact’. Abducted by Jamie Fessenden, Refugee by Kim Fielding, My Final Blog by F.E. Feeley, Jr Unusual Attention by B.G. Thomas. Although all the stories are well written, my favorite has to be unusual Attention. It grabbed me with the plot and characters then refused to let go. The losing time, the romance, it was really intriguingetbrpile.weebly/reviews/

    13. 1st story 3* because it's a human-meets-alien story that I enjoyed.2nd 1*, because it's more about a character growth/character healing, than about human-meets-alien. And I just couldn't stand the emo.3rd 2*, because while the story wasn't that entertaining, I could empathize with the MC. 4th DNF, because I didn't like the choppy writing and the wackadoodle MC.
