1st Bad Review

During my Google search of the previous post, I came across the first bad review of something that I've written. The review was written by Jason Fischer for Tangent (www.tangentonline.com/) and was for the charity e-anthology Shadow Box edited by Shane Jiraiya Cummings and Angela Challis. He reviews each of the 70 or so flash stories in the anthology.

Here is what he had to say about my contribution:

“Keep Tahoe Blue” by Stephen M Wilson
While this story begins on a high note of sinister gore, it rapidly descends into a pale pastiche of the Cthulhu experience. The protagonists' dialogue is clichéd and awful. This gun-toting occultist seems to have been wrenched from a role-playing game and dropped kicking and screaming into a short story.

I was amused when I read this because 99% of it is completely true--he got what I was doing, he just didn't seem to get that I was doing it for a purpose. "Keep Tahoe Blue" is a parody, not a 'pastiche' (there is a difference, Mr. Fischer).

Anyhow, the review didn't bother me, on the contrary it made me smile--it's exciting to me to even be published in venues that are getting reviewed (whether positive or not).

So that's that.

I will be posting a list of the reviews on my ChiZine story "Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee Around a Pomegranate" soon.
