Short FICTION 3 Reviewed at Book Fox

Book Fox publishes book reviews and has given Short FICTION 3 a fantastic review. Novelist Lisa Glass authors the review and gives special mention to my story "Little Man" among the 16 stories published in this collection. An excerpt:

"Short Fiction 3 privileges ‘voice’ first and foremost, but I also felt there was a very strong focus on place. For those of you who appreciate interesting artwork, each story is accompanied by at least one commissioned illustration. My favourite stories of the bunch were: “Little Man”, which vividly depicted the tensions between young brothers and sisters; “Emile in the Circus”, a prize-winning story about the decline of a circus and its bear, set against a background of destitution and famine; “The House of Cranes”, a haunting oriental tale of a family’s enchanted plate. I cannot recommend Short Fiction 3 highly enough. It is an astonishingly good collection."

You are awesome!

Glad to see the reviewer gave you a (much deserved) shout out!

Up at the Schwadron Institute this past weekend I got to read your story in ShortFICTION. It was great! I loved the suspense and way you integrated exposition.

I also liked the story about the circus and the super short stories written by Bruce Holland Rogers.
