My first review…

September 7, 2007 at 3:46 am (Published, Reviews, Writing)

I ran a Google search for Triangulation: End of Time just to see what’s out there, and found what I believe to be the first review over at Son and Foe. Jeremiah Sturgill noted that “That Ain’t a Mosey” sticks quite close to the typical zombie trope, which he described as “a bit more ‘typical’ than I would prefer” — the only negative for the story, if you really want to call it that.

Then again, why reinvent the wheel if you don’t have to? Fans of zombie stories will likely get a kick out of this one, and I have an inordinate fondness for the line from which the story’s name is pulled. Call me crazy, but I think it’s just plain good writing.

Sturgill seemed to like the anthology overall, saying its only real weakness is the range of stories, which go from my Old West tale to alternate universes.  

But then, that’s not so much a design flaw as it is a conscious trade off, and one that is not a bad choice for an anthology to make. The stories collected in Triangulation: End of Time will help expand your reading horizons, and they will help scratch your very particular, hard-to-reach, highly personal speculative fiction itch. Not bad for $12.
