Some just make you think how we have evolved while others can be debated if science is trying too hard to create or recreate things that the world is not ready for. These stories vary in context and length, so there is always the chance to find a favorite piece or storyline within the variety of tales from the Tenerife Island.
Highly recommended!! And when a scientific design engineer with a taste for Science Fiction decides to set his speculative tall tales there amazing adventures do, indeed, ensue. Set, for the most part, in the near future, the tales use very believable twists on emergent technology, sometimes ours and sometimes possibly from some other place entirely.
What Thorne creates in Tenerife is a world where the reader never knows what to expect under the sea, in caves, on the land and in the air.
The island becomes, in various tales, a land where animals act as intelligently as humans, where attempts to handle environmental issues have very unexpected results, where exotic locations and experimental science create sometimes dark, sometimes humorous, and always amazing and utterly intriguing results. Tony Thorne's grasp of the science that looms just over the horizon and his love for the genre come together, in these stories, to create speculative fiction of the very best kind.

There is a rich vein of fiction to mine with Tony; he is just finishing his first full length novel, SciFi of course, and has written well over 70 short stories in the last 4 years alone. It all stems back to Saturday mornings at the local flea pit in Southend-on-Sea, watching the grainy black and white adventures of Flash Gordon.
