I’m in a writing group and we’ve made an anthology. This is the fourth for the group, although I’ve only participated in this one. My story, SPAWN BOX, can be found on page 165. Tiny review: it’s about a box that spawns in a pawn shop, and the contents send the shop owner on an adventure. Yes, using a map.
The theme of the anthology is maps, so all stories feature one somehow. I won’t review the stories because I don’t feel like that would be fair. I know these people and I can get a bit brutal if I don’t like the story. Having said that, mine’s the best, in my opinion. That’s my bias showing, I’ll tuck it back in. If you’re interested, you can purchase the book here.
Another story I wrote (I did warn you, this post is self promotion) can be found here. This was written for a competition and had to feature specific elements. I didn’t win, but the stories that did are good. My story is called UNCLOCKING THE ILLUSION and features the same pawn shop as the one in the above anthology, although written in a slightly different narrative voice.
This concludes my promotion of me. Back to book reviews in the next post.
