    One thought on “A Thousand Goodbyes”

    1. This is a fascinating story, with a great concept that introduces us to time travel of a very different kind. I loved the idea of a species that goes out into the galaxy and records the "real history" of dead civilizations by sending agents back in time to examine major catastrophes by having them live through the horrible situations. The scenes picked for Earth are interesting, if not entirely unexpected, and offer a good sample of some of humankind's greatest idiocies (in my personal opinion). [...]

    2. A great idea for a novel indeed, but not for a short story. It was gorgeous. But I needed more & it didn't give me what I really needed from a story like this. It's like , when after a very long hot day you get home thirsty as fuck & you find out the ice cream you wanted to dig into has vanished from the fridge. Or sth like that.

    3. Reviewed for Hearts On Fire ReviewsFirst of all, this really doesn’t have an HEA, at least in my opinion. The title, A Thousand Goodbyes, is truly apt. Daff’it and Ni’il, in their various guises, go through time together, with Daff’it repeatedly dying (sometimes horribly) and Ni’il being present. The first time (at least in the story) is in the year 1201 and the last shown (but not the last) is the year 26958. Although it explains the purpose of this, it was confusing for me, and I cou [...]

    4. This one was pure romance in my opinion and I loved it. The concept of being "collectors/recorders" and experiencing moments of time so that you can study why civilization ended was quite frankly genius in my opinion. I loved that Niall always stuck by and came to Dafydd when his death came even if it was explained that they had to stick together to exist. I absolutely loved the story even though it was a bit sad. If Zahra Owens plans on writing more Sci-fi books I'm soooo on board with it. This [...]

    5. 3,5 starsEternal love comes with a price - a thousand goodbyes. And thousands more to come. This isn`t something I would like to remember or looking forward to.HEA minus the happy.Unusual story that shouldn`t be read on a melancholy day

    7. Wow what a peculiar short story. I don't even know what to say but I do know it was to undeveloped and to weird for me.
