    1. This is a 5633 word short story that is available (free when I read it on 08/02/2010) online at tor/stories/2008/08/shade



    2. Short story bingo read.This story takes place in between Jumper and Reflex but I thought it was pretty self-explanatory by itself. It’s been years since I read either of those two books, but Gould’s style is so relaxed and enjoyable it felt like visiting old friends. I really need to get back to this series, it's one of my all-time favorites.


    3. Shade is a short story set between Reflex and Impulse. Millie and Davy help a village in an unknown country where all the water has dried up. Shade definitely helps show the humanitarians that Millie and Davy become during the series. I found it interesting to see this different side to them, instead of the constant threat of being captured for being 'jumpers'.Definitely read this if you enjoy the book series.You can read it for free here.


    4. #20 short story read -- couldn't read much yesterday, thx to migraine.This was ok, but I found the transformation of the camp a little too fast post-lake.Liked Xareed.2.5 stars.


    5. I read this for free at tor/stories/2008/08/shade This not book it is a short story. But it was still great. I wish it could have had more of Davy and Millie but it was fun to see someone discovering their abilities and really just going with it. Personally I would have freaked out but this young refugee just really wanted to believe in a miracle.


    6. Its a testament to Steven Gould's writing that I enjoyed this story so much when I haven't read any of the main story (Jumper, etc). This was a very short story that was well put together, interesting and compelling enough to make me go get the other stories.


    7. This is an enjoyable short story, but I do not who Gould had in mind as the target audience. I don't think it does a good enough job introducing people to the Jumper universe, but at the same time, I don’t think it adds anything new to readers already familiar with the stories. I enjoyed visiting the Jumper universe from the point of view of a normal person and taking the journey of encountering a person that can teleport and how the main character interprets what he sees. While this was writt [...]


    8. Nice account of the exploits of Dave and Millie when they cross paths with a young brave lovely refugee. Unfortunately it is too short or may be it was so good that I did not want it to end.


    9. Having read the first two, bought this one. It's only 32 pages long and takes only a few minutes to read, but it could be every bit a chapter from one of the first two jumper seriesok, actually the second one, but still an excellent use of a coffee break.


    10. Short story set in the Jumper universe. I saw the film almost a decade ago, but don't remember the characters. Or even if the two jumpers in this were the same people. Easy to follow even without having read the other books, maybe too easy? Also came across with a wee bit of white savior vibes, even if I appreciate the setting being a bit different than the norm.


    11. I liked it, but for me, after thinking about it, it kind of highlights the limits of Superheroes and super powers. I've always thought that Superman was limited, in that yes, he can stop a speeding train or put out a fire by freezing a lake and thawing it out, but he is always _reactive_ and he is basically using force against force. Lex Luthor builds an army of bank robbing robots, and Superman destroys them, but Lex Luthor always gets away to be evil another day. In that way, Millie and David [...]


    12. It was great to see the jumper couple back in action, nice short story.We can have a glimpse at their post-Reflex life: still helping around the world, but being cautious not to leave any signs that could lead their enemies to Canada, where they secretly live.I can't wait for the 3rd book, Impulse. January 2013 is a damn long wait though.Jumper and Reflex are among my most beloved books.


    13. Read this back when I was waiting for Impulse to come out. It's a nice short story set in the Jumper universe. It doesn't add much in the way of plot, but if you want to get more of Dave and Millie then give it a go :)


    14. Simple, heartfelt, and a nice glimpse into what David and Millie have decided to do with their lives. Enjoyed the richly created scenery in such a short time and truly understood Millie at the end- found myself laughing right along with her. Beautiful little story.


    15. I don't usually add short stories to my list, but since I discovered this story through I decided to break my policy.This was available to read for free on tor. I like the comment "teleportuers sans frontieres"


    16. It's an interesting look at Davey and Millie from the outside, but it's too short for me to invest in or care about the story. I'm just not that fond of short stories.


    17. This was a nice story involving David and Millie. It's interesting to see them from another perspective besides each other as in the first two novels.


    18. Nice little story. Helping poor africa. I would have liked one story from after "reflex", like a more developped shade. Will soon read "impulse".




    19. Short and nice :) Liked it, because it reminded me of all the good stuff in Jumper series. Worth reading, if you're a fan :)


    20. Apparently part of a larger series. This is good, very good. The main character is this great little boy who keeps thinking of others before himself.



    21. An ok short story! Satisfied my need for the original characters, except cent, and opened up another story.





    22. A very short interlude between JUMPER novels. It was a fun read though What would "Jumping" look like when seen by somewhat primitive but desperate people? The Gods Must be Crazy?


    23. This was such an amazing story! Now being one of my all time fav. plots. It will be well worth your time even if u have not read the rest of the series.
