“Blake Charlton’s “Endosymbiont” — to put it simply — blew me away. What starts out as the touching personal story of a young girl on chemotherapy soon makes way to things of larger scope and import. It weaves in interesting applications and extrapolations of technology and shows keen insight into interpersonal relationships. While the plot may echo Vernor Vinge and The Matrix, Charlton’s voice is totally his own, drawing upon his medical background to create a story that has big ideas, interesting twists and is 100% engrossing and abundantly satisfying.”
