SFRevu covers Shimmer

Check out the full review at SFRevu
Here’s a quick excerpt:

This is the second issue of Shimmer that I’ve read and the high quality of the stories continues. An insert tells us, “Each issue presents unusual stories told with conventional storytelling techniques.” That’s a good description. All but two stories got a Very Good rating from me and that’s a pretty good batting average.

    “Shimmer is an attractive magazine with some nice illustrations …” Hmm, I wonder who the art director might be? 🙂

    The art director might be someone who is very fortunate to have good artists willing to work for peanuts.

    How about a mix of cashews and peanuts? I’m sure you’d draw many more artists that way (you know, leave a trail of nuts leading to the Shimmer website 😉 ).

    Seriously, the art is great, the stories are great, and they get great reviews. What more could you ask for?

    I’m looking forward to a certain Aztec story which will grace our pages in the Spring issue. And the David Ho artwork for the cover is hot.

    Yup, the art is awesome.

    And the Stephen Stanley illustration for that “certain Aztec story” is very beautiful, as well. I’m still recovering from the idea of people drawing stuff from what I write 😉
