Shimmer gets reviewed

Our first issue of Shimmer was just reviewed in the Internet Review of Science Fiction. You have to log in to view it, so I’ll post a quick excerpt here.

Headlining the issue is Dario Ciriello’s Valley of the Shadow, a zombie story with a difference. Complex, subtle, and powerful, one man makes his way in a world where the dead walk again. These zombies aren’t eating brains, though. They walk with us, watch us, silently reproaching the living.

This is characteristic of the other material in Shimmerzine: contemporary fantasy with a dark edge, from capering death clowns to predators among sheep-like shoppers. The lightest piece here is a fun little take on the rapture.

I’m particuarly proud because I was the editor for Dario’s story.
