a review of “Stand Up”, in The Clockwork Russian

“Stand Up” is that good. I won’t spoil the premise. Roseman is proud of this one, he notes. I think he should be. If this piece isn’t expanded into a full-length book, it at least needs to be optioned by a production company into a film. If either boon does not befall it, then I’d call that a loss not just for genre fans, but anyone who enjoys a good story. It’s easily the best tale here, in my opinion, charging out the gates past a stable full of strong horses. That it hasn’t been published by someone is an indictment against the small press fiction markets. Read it.

My short-story “Stand Up” is exclusively available in The Clockwork Russian and Other Stories. Author and reviewer Jonathan C Gillespie thinks it’s one of the best stories in the collection. Here’s the entire review… or you could just buy the book. Just saying.
