Review: RARITY FROM THE HOLLOW by Robert Eggleton
REVIEW: RARITY IN THE HOLLOW by Robert Eggleton
Appalachia is a beautiful, scenic region, with a glorious environment (or at least that was so before mining, mountaintop removal, and tourism). But as glorious as is the backdrop, much of life Isn't pretty, nor even tolerable (or even legal). Perhaps if all the inhabitants were emotionless drones or androids, life would be acceptable. But then, among robots or androids, such goings on would never occur, because so much of crime, abuse, and other dangers spring directly from human emotions, which certainly run at full flood throughout this story. When life is intolerable, escape is essential; when physical escape is impossible, the mind must find its own way out, through reading, compartmentalizing--or the madness of a diseased imagination.
