“Youtopia… will leave you with your jaw on the floor. This is definitely an edge-of-your-seat thriller that will have you questioning what is and isn’t real… The characters are amazing, as unique as the plot, and highly believable. The twists and turns will leave you speechless… This is one of the best sci-fi books I have ever had the pleasure to read, something very different in the genre, and I can’t wait to read the next installment.”

Anne-Marie Reynolds, Readers’ Favorite (5 Stars)

“Everyone who writes short stories is a hero to me. To use an economy of words—and space—to distill feelings while also telling a story has to be difficult. Joseph Rein shows us how it’s done in his debut collection Roads Without Houses.”

Mary Ann Grossmann, St. Paul Pioneer Press
