So Much Stuff I Can't Recall

On a Tangent

Tangent Online is a website devoted to reviewing short fiction of the speculative fiction (fantasy/sci-fi) persuasion. They do big'uns like Analog and F/SF and smaller e-zines, too. E-zines like Dragons, Knights & Angels.

On Sunday they posted reviews of stories in DKA's June edition, which included my piece, "The Fortunate Purgatory of Arthur MacArthur."

Here's what Tangent had to say about TFP:
Mikesell's writing is strong, having a distinctive voice and a facile eye for viewing the (under)world. "The Fortunate Purgatory of Arthur MacArthur" is both a lighthearted and a sad tale, and Mikesell is able to successfully switch between both without losing a step. There are plenty of interesting descriptions here, and the originality of it is something to appreciate. The ending is appropriate and satisfying.
Not too shabby.
