a review of “Belief”

[It] struck me as meditation on hope amid hopelessness. Great vocals by cast. Author Jonathan C. Gillespie had these kind words to say about “Belief” over on the twitters.

John’s Reading reviews “Greener”

closetpuritan reviews “Survivor”

I think I might like this one best. […] This is sort of a push-your-limits-triumph-over-adversity story, and I liked the protagonist’s struggle between pessimism–”I’m going to die”–and determination to try to survive–”I can do this”. I recently found this review … Continue reading

Lillian Cohen-Moore reviews “Survivor”

Some of the other stories that hit real high notes for me include Josh Roseman’s ”Survivor,” because he fucking kills it in that story. His protagonist Wen is a believable teenage girl. Sometimes whiny, sometimes brave, Wen is faced with … Continue reading
