Review of: Self-Murder Attempt
reviewed by Han Shot Second on 01/28/2012
Passion, but a little rough
When reading this short story, I sense and feel the passion in which you are telling it. It happened. It's real. However, it's incredibly rough in its current form. Once again, I love the passion and dedication you have to telling this story specifically. Considering this is a memoir, the only changes you can make are more to your narrative voice. While I once again appreciate the passion, the biggest problem is simply in its telling and until that is changed, the story is in a rough form.

A review of The Gospel of Michaelby Han Shot Second on 03/22/2012So I loved this short story. Whenever I love something, I wax enthusiastically about how original it is, how utterly important it is to read, and of course, how much I really, truly loved it. And The Gospel of Michael -- by Ceska -- is one of those rare stories that manages to combine a science-fiction element with an emotional one. As any writer knows, that's incredibly hard... read
