Please forgive me when I share these review excerpts.
Interspecies is coming out in a couple of days and to read the first reaction to words you’ve written is euphoric and humbling and you have this intense sense of wanting to share the good news.
“Babylon’s Song” by Woelf Dietrich contains beautiful language and minute details; contrasts an idyllic setting with carnage; builds tension; holds tenderness; and takes us on a unique ride. So many ups and downs could traumatize the reader, were it not for his storytelling mastery. Just one favorite phrase from it: a mirage of hope.”
Yesterday, a review by Keith West on Adventures Fantastic lauded the anthology, concluding the review with these words:
“Interspecies is a solid science fiction anthology that provides entertaining reading for a thinking person and sets a high bar for further stories set in this universe. It’s well worth your time. These are writers to watch.”
I have a song in my soul today and it feels like I’m floating on a cloud of pixie dust. I’ll come down to earth later this afternoon, hopefully not too hard, but for now I’m enjoying this feeling. I sometimes wonder whether I write because I like writing or because I love how my words affect people.
