"Burnished Bridge" is a short novella, but it is big on ideas. In fact, anyone who has read Ray Melnik's previous novels "The Room" and "To Your Own Self Be True" knows Melnik takes ground-breaking scientific theories and creates impressive, often mind-blowing plots, but not sheerly for the technological magic or special effects, but to explore and develop his characters. Melnik is first and foremost a romantic and a student of the human character, and secondly, a writer of science fiction. - by Tyler R. Tichelaar - author of "The Marquette Trilogy"
