It is just so exciting to read what people think about Disrupted Worlds and I appreciate so much the effort that reviewers make, so thank you to Yacouba T for making my day with a review on amazon.com under the heading “Great sampling of indie authors” quoted below in warts and all style:
“Independent authors and publishers need more offerings like Disrupted Worlds. All too often, independent works get rushed to market without thorough editing or a professional look.
This collection provides a good sampling of what indie authors and publishers are capable of when they respect the readers enough to work on their craft and present a clean product. So thanks to the authors and editor!
As for the stories, I generally second the review from Oh Yeah! There are a few places where it feels to me like the writing craft is still being honed. I suppose it’s somewhat like watching a college baseball team in action – flashes of Major League talent with the occasional over-throw of the cut-off man. I’m going to give the MVP award to Gotcha.
A couple of days ago I was doing one of my increasingly rare stints in school. You might remember how I forgot to tell the school that I don’t work there any more? Well yeah, they still don’t know! The bell went and I learned first hand why that place has a one way system in the corridors.
I only knew one way to get to where I was meant to be headed next so I found myself battling against the tide. Edging gently in the wrong direction I made very slow progress. It helped that, with my teacher hat on, I was seen as someone in authority. They kinda had to let me pass.
