Overall, Creeping Shadows is a strong collection. While themes of exile, migration, memory and identity are common threads that run through this work, the editors remind us that "the Cuban-American experience is not monolithic and demands ... to be told through many voices." While I was in Skokholm I started writing the story, but the weather was so lovely and the island so appealing, that I didn't get beyond the first paragraph." Chris has lived, worked and studied all over Australia - as a primary teacher, librarian, film publicist and production manager, arts administrator and a cultural heritage consultant, travelling as far afield as Kalgoorlie in WA and Poruma Island in the Torres Strait.

As it is printed only in pricey limited editions, public collections should probably skip over this one. Heavily illustrated, the images draw forth elements from the poems without giving away their secrets; complements to the work, but not solutions to the dark shadows. Libraries that are serious about horror and science fiction will do their members a favor by having this book and putting it out where it can be seen. All richly told stories of characters down on their luck, relying on their luck, or simply have bad luck.

All good fun!' Vicki was born and raised in a farming community in South Australia's mid north. Short scenes of the main players� private lives help to bring everyone to life. Short story collections just don't seem to sell any where near as well as novels. There really isn�t a bad story in the bunch. New Legends wasn’t ground-breaking in the way both Dangerous Visions and Mirrorshades were, but it’s just a damned good anthology with stories from its contributors that are some of the finest these authors ever have written.

Although they do not rule out genre stories, the editors emphasise that this is a literary magazine, and their major interest is the quality of the literary style. A: Chopin read widely and drew from many movements in nineteenth-century literature—romanticism (she had read Walt Whitman and Ralph Waldo Emerson), realism (she reviewed a book by Hamlin Garland) and local color (she places her characters in a geographical and historical moment and details their sometimes exotic speech patterns and cultural dispositions).

We’re led to believe that smaller and shorter means faster and easier to pull off, yet any fiction writer worth their salt will tell you that trying to cram an entire story into a few pages is no easy task, and writing a truly great short story takes far more time than some might imagine. I’m looking forwards (pun intended) to it! The editors are willing to work with authors if they see potential in a story. Originally set in the collection Four Dark Nights, along with stories by Christopher Golden, Douglas Clegg, and Tom Piccirilli, Little's contribution now stands on its own here.

But we do have short periods of time, like when we are commuting to and from work or college, to read something that's 'bite-sized.' So, if you don’t have time to read every day then short fiction is the answer.
