E M Foner

E M Foner is a new author to me, and as an American, his work is better known over there than here. It deserves to be read everywhere!

Date Night on Union Station

My review - 

Date Night on Union Station is a comedy sci-fi story which I enjoyed very much. Union Station is run by benign artificial intelligences and Kelly Franks is the earth’s top diplomat, later promoted to acting ambassador, though the pay doesn’t reflect the job. She’s given a gift of 5 sessions with a dating agency. The agency is also operated by the artificial intelligence.

This isn’t a sort of holding your sides comedy but a streak of humour runs throughout it and it very much appealed to me. The characters are strong and you must look out for the scheming, manipulative little flower sellers. I loved them! The ending was satisfying and there’s a sequel which I must get around to reading. I want to know what happens to the people I enjoyed spending time with.


  1. I just read this one recently and loved it. So much so that I immediately started reading the second one and have been enjoying it even more. Given the poor cover art it is not a book that I see a lot of people picking up on their own, so any of us who have read it and can encourage our friends/followers to read it, need to get the word out.

  2. I got this as a freebie on Amazon and it's great. I'll definitely be checking out the rest in the series.
