Quick Sip Reviews on “The Last Novelist”

Quick Sip Reviews has some nice things to say about my story “The Last Novelist” now up at Tor.com.

This is a story of longing and of looking back. Of decline—in health, in life. And of finding something at the end of life that is unexpected but wonderful….It’s an inspiring and elegant story and a great read!

They also review plenty of others, including Theodora Goss, Alyssa Wong, Bo Bolander, Catherynne Valente, Maria Dahvana Headley, and more.

Quick Sip Reviews “Demon in Aisle 6”

This morning I received this nice review of “Demon in Aisle 6” from Charles Payseur at Quick Sip Reviews:

“Stories like this wreck me. Just absolutely wreck me. There is an aching beauty and tragedy to this story that just sits like a weight on my chest. In short, it is an amazing story, amazingly sad and moving and okay it’s been a while since I’ve cried like that but hurrah, my eyes still work for that…But my glob is this a beautiful story. A haunting story that looks at fear and guilt, a story that shows us that we are all made of stars, but we are not all free. Fuck. Seriously go and check out this story. It is amazing and all the yes.”

Review of “The Garden Beyond Her Infinite Skies”

cw_104_700I received this nice review of my story “The Garden Beyond Her Infinite Skies” in the latest Clarkesworld Magazine​ from Charles Payseur at Quick Sip Reviews: “A powerful story about generational abuse and release and the dream of freedom, this story does a lot of things right. The setting is incredibly original and imaginative, the world of Aya, the main character, one of near abstraction, where Gardeners care to plants that are entire realms, entire universes… It’s a great story, the characters not humanoid but their tendencies definitely human-like. It’s just the sort of science fiction that I love, full of interesting ideas and yet grounded in the idea that people are capable of doing better, capable of being better. Indeed!”
