Part of the issue with the collection is, in fact, the wide net it spreads. While Erickson in no short order proves himself a competent short fiction writer, there's such a very broad array of subjects that things almost become discordant as a whole, and sometimes stories may be slightly too surreal for the average reader individually. You could never accuse Erickson of writing anything too simple, to be sure, and many readers will enjoy the cerebral twists these stories take. However, for some, stories such as Recount Our Dreams may require a few flicks back to check what exactly is going on. Maybe some would prefer to see the stories re-categorized by theme, but isn't it so inviting to find a treasure chest of so many different gems? Especially when those gems are of such an unusual nature, most readers familiar with this kind of book will be diving in to discover their favorite flavor.
This anthology is an exciting step for Erickson. Entertaining and well-constructed prose like this will win him new fans, especially if he strategizes and maybe offers some of these pieces to the usual sci-fi magazines as submission for publication. He deserves to be more widely known, and each work presented from the coffers of Erickson's mind seems to be adding more skill and detail to his authorship.
Time is for Dragonflies is most certainly worth a dip for any fan of science fiction looking for fresh directions to steer their imagination to new realms." - 4 stars, Self-Publishing Reviews
