Gary Henry, reviewer for Honest Indie, writes:

Forrest’s speculative fiction stories are reminiscent of all my favorites, from Jack London to Philip Jose Farmer. His writing is polished without being pompous, insightful and vividly imaginative. And as Elmore Leonard might say, Forrest ‘leaves out the parts people skip.’ I’ll not try to give you any story summaries here — there’s no way I could do justice to the subtle power of his tales. For instance, if I were to try to tell you about ‘The Unlighted Sentinel,’ talking about cannibals vs. gardeners on a forgotten space station in the far future, I’d only be giving you the merest hint, and really, no clue at all. But if you peek into that world, it will swallow you up, just like the stories of every master storyteller. As speculative fiction is meant to do, Forrest’s stories put Faulkner’s ‘eternal verities’ of love, honor, courage and compassion on bold display, gems in ring settings of the bizarre, dramatic and even frightening. These are great stories from a writer who knows the techniques of good writing and infuses them with heart, soul, insight and a fearful imagination.
