  • A review of Red Left Hand
    by Horace Jacobi on 03/01/2011
    If I cared about formatting at all, I would point out the lack of paragraph indentations and it being single spaced (my story is as well), but I don’t, so overall, your story is perfect. I really can’t imagine anyone who has reviewed this piece having anything at all to complain about, and I imagine if there is some fault hidden beneath the great tale being told here, it is... read
  • A review of Curtains
    by Horace Jacobi on 03/01/2011
    I can honestly say I have nothing to offer you. No help, no advice, but do you really need it at this point? I believe this is a story of yours that has already been published, so reviewing it now is simply for pleasure. I noticed Curtains has been on the Top Ten for a while, so by now, if there even were some slip-ups or errors of any kind, they would have been mentioned... read
  • A review of This Island Is Bliss
    by Horace Jacobi on 03/01/2011
    I enjoyed the story, and the whole idea buried within the many, many lines of over-explanation. What I think needs to be done, essentially, is trim the fat and leave only the meat of the story. Combine sentences and all that, and you’ll have a decent story. My only other issue was that I felt as though something was missing. I don’t know what to call it, resolution maybe... read

    Yo Horace

    If you ever pod cast hit up "Meet the Author". On their 9/12/2008 episode Chuck Pillahniuk, who I think you've mentioned before, gives a reading and discusses his work. It's pretty good. Thought you might be interested.

    Yo Horace

    Wow! Dude, thanks for pointing the zombie-ant article out to me. How interesting --- and a little unnerving --- that something like that exists on our planet. Imagine what might happen with one additional evolutionary process of chance and mutation. We humans might be in trouble... once the sowing starts.

    Truth is stranger than fiction, bro.

    Thanks again, and keep up with the good reviews. You offer great insight into people's work.
