of Discovery of Fire
Naqshi on November 2, 2012 Invitation to Discovery In my honest opinion, Discovery of Fire is Don Schecter’s best effort. The title reflects truly what is in most of the stories. He has given words to that particular feeling and excitement every man has when he passes from the innocence of childhood to the wonderful territory of youth, and then on to manhood. At the same time these stories describe the discovery of that inner fire, that passion that determines a man’s path in life, according to his true nature or will. Not an easy job to do, but the author has done it so simply that the results are outstanding.
Garland Davis, Jan. 24, 2012 Fantastic narrative [title story-Discovery of Fire]. I can see myself in so many of the situations… If only we knew when growing up that many of our fellow students/bunk-mates were going through the same emotional turmoil that we were…
A.B. Gayle (Australia), Feb 19, 2012 Discovery of Fire – Discovery of Passion…..I started reading Discovery of Fire straight away. The first three stories were a real joy. New Don Schecter!!!! Loved Bachelor Party It makes a great lead in. Ooze was a great contrast. Lots to think about there. Very believable, logical development. I liked The Garden Center too. Nice and spooky. [The] writing is really, really good.
