First Review

Steven H. Silver at Tangent On Line has a review up for the contents of the April cover-dated issue of Analog. The short fiction review site is new to me but apparently covers all print matter and is fed advance material from the publishers.

I now know, for example, that Michael A. Burstein and I share the issue with the following authors:

“Trial by Fire” by Shane Tourtellotte
“Don’t Kill the Messenger” by Kim Zimring
“As You Know, Bob” by John G. Hemry
“Crackers” by Jerry Oltion
“Things That Aren’t” by Michael A. Burstein & Robert Greenberger

The review is positive although not overly critical; you more or less get the vibe from his description. Interestingly, like editor Stanley Schmidt, he sees the sequel potential in the story, something that initially eluded the two authors. We are still kicking ideas around and just need to focus on it, I think.

    I saw a previous post of yours describing the ice cream parlor at the corner of Zerega Ave. and Westchester Ave.

    I lived on Tratman Ave./Overing St. for 18 years until age 21 (moved in 1978) and recall the ice cream parlor very well, but only from the outside.
    It was very colorful with many stuffed animals on the walls (if i remember correctly).

    I was wondering if you remember the name of the place? I can’t believe I lived there all those years and never stepped foot inside!

    What school did you attend in the area? I went to St. Raymond elementary and high schools.
