More Love From The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction

Stories for Chip: A Tribute to Samuel R Delany continues to be the gift that keeps on giving.

Now The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction have weighed in with a brilliant review: “But every story here shines, not with the reflected light of Samuel Delany’s own genius but with the power and conviction and sheer narrative joy of each individual writer. There’s no better tribute than that to the enduring influence and imagination of a master artist.”

Fantastic Review of The World and the Stars

Prominent genre review site SF Crowsnest has published a glorious review of the anthology The World and the Stars. The review praises the editor, Chris Butler (who did a smashing job, by the way), and calls out some highlights of the book.

The reviewer calls my story, “The Madness of Pursuit, the Desire of Lonely Hearts“, as a “fabulous adventure”. He goes on to say that “Creating a situation where…technology still allows for an old-fashioned maritime adventure is quite a skill and this story pulls it off nicely.”  Well, thank you, Mr Jones!   I have the Montpelier Writers Group to thank for helping me shape this into a better story.

A lot of great stories are in this book. Buy it now! Ask for at your local bookstore or get it at Amazon. There is something in it for everyone. You won’t be disappointed.
