A few nice reviews

So here’s what I call a set of very nice reviews (Note that I’m cutting story description in case you want to read them “clean.” Full reviews at the links):

First, Sam Tomaino at SFRevu says of “Good Luck Charm” (my short story in Abyss & Apex):

“Good Luck Charm” by Ron Collins -+- Brilliant story! I’ll put this on my Hugo Short List for Short Story next year.

That really does beat asharp stick in the eye, doesn’t it? I figure that a good rule of thumb is that any review that uses the word “Hugo” doesn’t suck.

But, wait, there’s more…Chuck Rothman, reviewing at TangentOnline has this to say about “Daily Teds” (My short story in the April Analog:

“…Ron Collins tells a light tale that considers the potential issue with the technology (both human and physical) that’s a joy to read.

And while I’m on the topic of “Daily Teds,” here’s John Lloyd, blogging at “There ain’t No Such Thing as a Free Lunch.”

Excellent…

And Lois Tilton at Locus:

I’m reminded of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, if those brooms had really gotten out of hand.

And then around again to Sam Tomaino at SFRevu:

Good solid story.
