Lacy Dawn's father relives the Gulf War, her mother's teeth are rotting out, and her best friend is murdered by the meanest daddy on Earth. Life in the hollow is hard. She has one advantage – an android was inserted into her life and is working with her to cure her parents. But, he wants something in exchange. It's up to her to save the Universe. Lacy Dawn doesn't mind saving the universe, but her family and friends come first. Rarity from the Hollow is adult social science fiction filled with tragedy, comedy and satire.


"The abuse in the book is graphic, but the story arc is hopeful: a family recovering and becoming better together." Publishers Weekly
"A fun, sometimes cleverly-gonzo, and even inspiring tale about an undaunted girl's close encounter of the weird kind." - David Brin, Award Winning SciFi Author
"Amusing at times, shocking at others, a touching and somehow wonderful SFF read." Amazing Stories Magazine
"...In the space of a few lines we go from gritty realism to pure sci-fi/fantasy. It's quite a trip." — The Missouri Review
"Brilliant satires such as this are genius works of literature in the same class as Orwell's Animal Farm. I can picture American Lit professors sometime in the distant future placing this masterpiece on their reading list."  —Marcha Fox, Retired NASA Engineer and SciFi Author
 
"...utterly compelling...a chilling, engaging verisimilitude that deftly feeds on both the utter absurdity of the characters' motivations and on the progression of the plot.... In the spirit of Vonnegut, Eggleton takes the genre and gives it another quarter turn." - Electric Review / Midwest Book Review
 
"...a hillbilly version of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy...serious subjects like poverty,ignorance, abuse...tongue-in-cheek humor without trivializing them...profound...a funny book that most sci-fi fans will thoroughly enjoy."— Awesome Indies
 
"...sneaks up you and, before you know it, you are either laughing like crazy or crying in despair, but the one thing you won't be is unmoved...a brilliant writer." —Readers' Favorite 

"The most enjoyable science fiction novel I have read in several years...." —Temple Emmet Williams, Retired Reader's Digest Editor
 
"...Good satire is hard to find and science fiction satire is even harder to find." — The Baryon Review
 
"...This piece of speculative fiction is nothing like anything I've read before...faces reality head-on while also pursuing themes that are outlandish...aptly mingled tragedy with humor...." — Page Hungry Bookworm
 
"...It is one of those books that if it does not make you think, you are not really reading it...." — On My Kindle
"...the writing feels timeless, classic and mature...could be read in a college setting both for the craft itself and its unique brand of storytelling.The premise was brilliant - Tabby A. Fae, My Trending Stories
"...difficult, funny, terribly sad, absolutely true, and extremely well told. It should be the winner of literary prizes...." Mary Thornburg, Award Winning SciFi Author
