Reviews for Space Whales and Other Nonsense:
“Eric Staggs is one of those rare sci-fi writers that has new ideas that simultaneously expand the genre and make it more accessible to everyone in the process. Each short story is a window into detailed worlds that will get your imagination firing and make you yearn for complete series set in each one. The stories run the gamut from far out alien adventures to tales that could happen just down the street if the world were tweaked ever-so-slightly. There is drama, action, philosophy, and even the occasional bit of humor. If you don’t love Sister Shiv then you don’t have a funny bone in your body. Point being, this short story collection is a lot of things, but that’s not a bad thing, and it will appeal to everybody. Like Shel Silverstein, Staggs has created something bizarre, but relatable to everyday life. You’ll appreciate how unique these stories are and how much you can take away from them.”

“Eric’s collections of short stories are not only entertaining but are very well written. There’s adventure, humor, intrigue and everything that makes stories exciting to read. As you’re reading it is so easy to make a mental movie from the words that are written on the pages. I enjoyed them very much. It was hard to wait to see what would happen next. Eric is a talented, gifted, and mind boggling writer. He will keep you your toes with his imagination. I recommend that you read Space Whales and Other Nonsense. You won’t be disappointed.” - Bianca Emery, Writer
“This collection of short stories is far and away the most entertaining new fiction I’ve come across in years. Staggs has an incredible ability to create vivid worlds that draw one in so fully that it is hard to finish a story without immediately missing the characters; simply put it leaves the reader wanting just one more page, one more line. These short stories take adventure and the struggle of existence to levels that allow the mind to play and wander. I highly recommend this work to fans of all genres and just know that it will not disappoint. Eric Staggs has an extensive collection of reviews, blogs, and other stories on his website (which I visit with regularity) at [...]. The fact that there are writers out there like this gives me hope for the future of fiction. I can’t wait for the next installment!!” – C. Caflisch
