Adventures in Reading reviews Horizontal Rain

Golly, it’s a banner week for reviews. Joe Sherry, at Adventures in Reading, reviewed “Horizontal Rain.”

Here’s a snippet.

Horizontal Rain is a reasonably short short-story, fewer than 2700 words, but Mary Robinette Kowal packs a good deal of story into those 2700 words. Confusion, fear, fairy tales, trolls, death, driving, construction, meetings, phone calls, and a general sense of unease as the harsh Icelandic wind blows the rain sideways.

If you’d like to read the story, it’s at Apex Online.

Mr. Sherry also posted his dream list of authors to invite for an anthology. Lord help me, I have no idea what sorting criteria could possibly have put me on the list at number two. Still, I like his day dream.

It’s an interesting mental game, isn’t it. Who would you invite to your dream anthology?

    What a great post. He’s got all my favorites on his list, plus some I’ve never heard of, or heard of but never read. I’ve written them down, as it’s very clear he has great taste in writers, and so I should read their works. 🙂

    I think he’s choosing writers who have good imaginations and are not parsimonious with them. That’s my impression, anyway.

    Wonderful story, btw.
