SURVIVOR reviewed

Survivor

Survivor was recently reviewed over at Chicago’s third coast review.

The reviewer had this to say:

“The theme of trauma, and recovering from it, is just one of the topics this collection addresses. If the idea of surviving and thriving as depicted in art doesn’t interest you, don’t let the title of this anthology deter you—it could just as easily be an argument for the merits of speculative fiction. With such a diverse collection, note this warning (or maybe pro-tip?): speculative fiction is a broad term, and the range of the stories in this collection are just as varied. If you’re the die-hard high fantasy type, or if space battles are the only type of story that keep your interest, you’ll have to filter through most of the stories to find the ones that fit your niche. Similarly, there’s one ghost story that will sate the historical fiction fans, but if historical fiction is all you’re into, this collection might not be for you. But if you’re open to seeing how writers create other worlds, or how they write weird and unusual situations in our familiar world, then definitely grab a copy of this book.”

The story’s first review on Amazon.com came today:

“This is one of the better ghost stories I’ve read in a while. It was sad and haunting, but there was a great resolution at the end. This is the first story that I’ve read by this author, and I will be reading more. Yep, I’d recommend this story and author.”
