      Comments from earlier readers


         From the back cover: 

                                                             "... magical and wise." 

                                                                             - Sam Keen, author, Fire in the Belly

                       "... this fresh and remarkable story engages with a new perspective on extra-terrestrial beings,

                         cross-generational relationships, the tenderness of aging, the lure of beauty, the folding of time,

                         and the essence of love. I see life through a different lens now." 

                                                                                             - Cedar Barstow, author, Right Use of Power: The Heart of Ethics

              Editor's recommendation:

                                      "When I discovered Never Again among Barking Rain's submissions, I was touched to the

                                       point of tears. The depths of meaning and near-poetic style with which Heather Starsong
                                       approaches this unique story shouted, "Represent this one!" I am so privileged to present
                                       this glorious title to you!"
