Posted on Thu, 18 Jun 2015

Some very striking imagery - the one that stood out for me was the passage comparing Joanie's voice to a shotgun, 'her words repeating until the cartridge emptied, until her words were simple, hollow clicks.'  I wasn't too sure about some of the...

You've got it all in there

Posted on Sat, 02 May 2015

You've got it all in there really - the self justification and the detachment, and the powerful images of what that leads to.  This is chilling and heartbreaking.

Posted on Mon, 15 Jan 2018

It does feel like things are changing, one way or another.  It seems as though there are two forces engaged in a giant tug of war, and at the moment it's unclear which one will win.  All that tradition is indeed comforting to many people, but it'...

Posted on Mon, 15 Jan 2018

I very much liked the structure of this, and the image of the dream slipping out and smashing on the tiles, releasing all that wonderful imagery, is very effective.  Similarly the way it turns gently around on itself at the end, almost a dream...

Posted on Sat, 13 Jan 2018

As another cat owned fool, I very much enjoyed this.  The image of unwinding like near broken clocks was particularly striking (oh dear, no pun intended) and there was something about the rhythm and the sensuousness of the language that really...

Posted on Tue, 09 Jan 2018

A timely reminder that, sadly, such attitudes do not belong to the past.  The structure of this, the way the rhythm changes from the flow of the first section to the jaggedness of the second, is very effective at emphasising the content.  It...

Lovely sentiments Richard.  And possibly the most important line in there is: 'still not too late, you know'.

Posted on Sun, 07 Jan 2018

It may indeed be very relevant.  As the poet says, 'What is this life if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare'.  Standing and staring is in danger of becoming a lost art.  I hope your fictional society has better luck preserving it...

I absolutely loved this. 

Posted on Fri, 05 Jan 2018

I absolutely loved this.  Read it through, then went back and read it again after the 'reveal' and didn't stop chuckling all the way through.  I have a Sibyl, and I can just imagine her being this mean to a poor Sam.  I also have a much milder...
