Critique by SB
By your good old editor! Few simple words about the works of my much cherished authors! So the critiques will be honest, short and sweet.
Rain by Labanya- A piece of beauty. Brought back memories of old days!
Iridescent vignette by Scott Hastie: This tug between material world and spiritual world is so strong!
Ye reap… by saptarchi: Very true words, Indians should have seen the condition of Bangladesh and Pakistan before electing blood-thirsty fanatics.
Fogline by Brieuc Martin Onraet 15: I really enjoyed this piece, it sounds like based on Brieuc’s own childhood, that is why it feels so real.
The dawn of data abstraction by Vasu Srinivasan translated by Raghunandan Kuppuswamy: Very interesting story and very well translated, I wonder what will happen next month. Will he be spared or not? Well written and translated Vasu and Raghu.
Magna- End of hunt by Troy David Loy: Bit confused, so my namesake was a villain who got amnesia and forgot her past and joined good folks? That does not really change the past, does it? Forget it and it will bite you harder.
Come back… by Dom Collucci: Very deep, I don’t believe in rebirth, but for believers it must be like an endless loop.
Bitter Pill dose 43 by BP We are safe: BP spoke out what is in too many minds these days. Oh boy! We are getting what we asked for.
Stallions by Manju Balkrishna: This is one mind-blowing painting. I absolutely loved it.
Dream Angel by Pat Ritters 1: Pat clearly shares his childhood stories, and it is as awesome as Brieuc’s. I was terrified for a second when the kid threw the gunpowder in the drum. Thank God they both were unharmed! His mother was really lousy! Great writing Pat!
I believe that will be it for my critique as an editor, you will have to read the rest in Ezine. Of course there is truckloads of more works there!
