  • A review of The Walking Man

    You've taken an unlikely fantasy scenario and honed it into a readable, interesting tale. Your descriptions, fears, and thoughts are vivid. In taking on a project like this and having to stretch a limited experience into six pages, the various pieces sometimes run a trifle long, but then the experiences ARE the story. Have you considered giving the speaker a little back... read

    Well, I've read it twice. The writer is very accomplished in word usage, catchy phrases, and metaphors. I guess I'll be embarrased to read I mis- interpeted this piece, but as I see it, Carter's problems stem from playing with sparking toys following lasik surgery.

    Thanks for your review of 'The After Life' - yes it was fictional.
    It was the first short story I had written in about 30 years, and my first posting here on the street. I appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback.

    Hi Gary,

    Your review of The Flower Woman has absolutely made my day. I haven't read any Elmore Leonard, but I'll be looking him up based on your recommendation. You're right that second "She would" isn't needed. Thanks again.

    Take care - Mike
