A review is in

"The Fix", a website that reviews short fiction, has a review of Issue #33 of Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine. Of "A Most Heinous Man", the reviewer says this:

[The illustration by Lewis Morley] appropriately meshes with the humorously pulpy monster tale by Richard S. Crawford. A bit longer than flash, this fun bit of fiction makes up in character what’s lacking in plot. To tell more would give away what little story there is, but if the family antics of Herman & Lilly or Morticia & Gomez are up your alley, then this will be a delightful read.

Honestly, I’m still working out whether this is a positive or negative review. "Lacking in plot?" Bah. "What little story there is"? Double bah. Still, it is a "fun bit of fiction", and the reviewer at least caught the tone I was shooting for with my story.

Anyway, if you have not yet read this story, then go buy the magazine and read it now.

    1. Lyn,

      Of all the people to read this, I last expected the person who wrote the review! I hope that you see that I did appreciate the positive review, and that my comments were meant in jest. It’s hard to convey a sly smirk in writing.

  1. No no, I thought it was a hoot. I loved the bah and double bah. I figure we’re all in this writing thing together and no one will get out alive anyway, so let’s enjoy it while it lasts. 🙂 But I accidentally deleted the email from my junk filter, so if you emailed me directly (and it wasn’t just a comment notification), please resend. Thanks!
