A review by anthropologist Dr. Kenneth Feder:

"I very much enjoyed Blind Date With a Wood Frog. A very nice piece of fiction. It seems to me that it's always difficult to write a convincing surprise ending. So often the surprise is muted with too many obvious clues scattered throughout the story. More often, the surprise at the end bears virtually no relationship to what has transpired previously, just pulled out of the air or, more poetically, out of the ass of the writer. In this case, there were nicely subtle hints that something was very different about Wagner. The "reveal" at the end was a surprise, but flowed directly from the author’s description of Wagner’s mental state. It was more of an "aha!" moment, rather than a "wtf?" moment. Which is rare."

—Dr. Ken Feder, author of Frauds, Myths, and Mysteries:Science and Pseudoscience in Archaeology.


Dear Niko, I just wanted to let you know how much I loved this novelette! What a suspenseful mystery with a great twist at the end. A combination of science, psychology and intrigue, as well as a remarkably well studied characterization of Hitler! Loved it!

—Sandra Subach, psychologist
