A Bunch of Wordz

It's their "z", not mine. :) At any rate, they have some nice things to say about Dani Girl.

Review at SFRevu.com

Many thanks as always to Sam Tomaino for his ever-so-brief reviews of our ever-so-brief stories over at SFRevu. The story he made most note of, interestingly enough, is the oldest: Ambrose Bierce's "John Mortonson's Funeral".

While you're at it, some of you may be interested in the interview with Jay Lake and the review of The Dark Knight -- along with a ton of other great stuff.

New Review!

Special thanks to short story reviewer Sam Tomaino (and, of course, editor Gayle Surrette) for a brief review of our brief stories from last month.

The problem with reviewing such short stories is that you can't say too much without giving the whole thing away, and the problem with thanking people for such short reviews is that you can't give a flavor for what they say without quoting most of the review. I'll shut up now so you can read Sam's reviews. (Hint: he seems to have liked them.)

While you're there, you might be interested in the interview with Paolo Bacigalupi. He's paranoid without letting it get him over the edge, which is interesting, and I like this line from his comment about The Voluntary Human Extinction Movement: "I love it. It means more elbow room for me and mine."

Five Star Literary Stories

I just found a great site called Five Star Literary Stories, run by three-time Pushcart nominee T.J. Forrester. I don't suppose it's shocking, with a name like that and an editor with those credentials, that it focuses on literary fiction (as opposed to science fiction, thrillers, etc.).

It might be especially beneficial if you don't always like literary fiction, or if you're not sure what people see in some of those fancy-schmancy stories. The reviews I've seen so far have been intelligent without being pretentious, so you'll read a very short story plus a good review -- and nothing, in my experience, enriches a reading experience more than seeing what other intelligent readers see in a given story.

Naturally, when I saw what TJ was doing, I wanted to be a part of it, so I spoke to TJ and I'll be nominating Stefanie Freele's "James Brown is Alive and Doing Laundry in South Lake Tahoe".

I'll be adding this to my links page, too.

Here's the link.

Review at "Grasping for the Wind"

John Ottinger over at Grasping for the Wind just reviewed our April issue. His favorite story was "Call of the Wild, Line Three", but he says interesting things about the rest of the zine as well. Thanks, John!

2. The Anonymous Reader just posted a review of this issue as well. Thanks again, AR!

Finally, this blog post will only be at the top of the list for a short time -- I'm about to release our St. Patrick's Day special!

Review by The Anonymous Reader

Thanks to The Anonymous Reader for a nice write-up of our January issue. I'd offer to buy you a beer sometime -- if I could tell who you are. :)
