From Space & Time #132: Not Yet Woken

Just finished reading “The Ones Who Have Not Yet Woken” by Rahul Kanakia in issue #132 of Space and Time. First off, big kudos to Kanakia for the clever title. The meaning of it seems straightforward until the end.

The character progression was surprising while retaining a natural quality. In the beginning I disliked the protagonist, but as he grew and changed so did my respect for him. An interesting peek at a potential near future, the story has some interesting social observations as well.

A nice twist at the end, I’d love to divulge more but I’d have to give away spoilers. I enjoyed the story and look forward to reading more from this talented author. Nice job to illustrator Alan Beck as well for a lovely image of “Archie.”

You can read “The Ones Who Have Not Yet Woken” by Rahul Kanakia for yourself in the latest issue of Space and Time, available here. The next issue is due out on March 20. Follow on InstagramFacebook and Twitter to stay in touch!
