Review People

My story, Rubble People (143), received a great review recently from Tangent:

“Rubble People” by Matthew Sanborn Smith is simply amazing. Set in a world where the army uses a psychic equivalent of telepresence to allow soldiers to create amalgamated bodies for war, we are presented with the viewpoint of one of these soldier’s wives. The writing is tight and strikes a perfect tone for the world Sanborn Smith has created and the first person narrator used. The story itself shines as the logical progression of the narration takes us to an ending that feels correct and all too human. Read this story.

157, 158

Finished story 157 the other day. It's called Red and Roxanne and combines a few genres, although it's mostly science fiction. It's the first non-flash piece of fiction I've finished in a year and a half. It's around 8,600 words.

I also just finished a flash piece called Candy Crush, which must be 158, of course.

It's all in the hands of the editors now.
