Symbiosis 1908 Alex Pusineri Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
During the early morning of June 30, 1908, a powerful explosion is reported in a remote location near the Tunguska River in Siberia, Russia. Miles away, windows break, people are knocked off their feet, and for weeks, skies are aglow. It comes to be known as the Tunguska Event, and many wonder whether the blast is related to a volcano, meteorite, or comet-or even from a secret experiment gone awry. Unfortunately, none of the theories is unanimously accepted.
In the city of Bern, a scientist begins investigating the glowing mystery. He begins inquiring about the strange light in the skies over Europe and western Russia, but finds himself left with more questions than answers. As theories circulate that the explosion was most likely caused from a meteorite, the scientist lets his great mind run wild-a decision that brings him to an exciting epiphany that changes everything and reveals his identity to the world.
Symbiosis 1908 is the intriguing story of what really could have happened on June 30, 1908, with subtle and unforeseen consequences for humanity.

Alex Pusineri's first hop into science fiction is a delicious and imaginative treat. Symbiosis deserves four stars if only because it packs so many elements into so little space without any sense of clutter. A fast read that can be consumed in one sitting, the concept requires some pondering to digest. Pusineri plays with form as well as substance in the structure of this unique short story, erecting an unassailable wall of truth around a delicate fiction that begs to be true. Every word and every idea in the story is deliberate. And every detail is worth considering for its own sake. Bordering on the philosophical, the best thing about Pusineri's little book is that it poses more tantalizing questions than it answers. Give us more, Mr. Pusineri.
