Comments from K. Anne Unger, Editor on In Search of Life on Alameda VIII:
It’s always refreshing to be grabbed by a piece of fiction that takes you to surprising new places. “In Search of Life on Alameda VIII” explores more than literature as an art form, it picks us up and carries us to the end, keeping us hanging on, anxious for the next glimpse of this kaleidoscope journey through the eyes of a maladjusted child. This flash piece reaches in deep, perpetrating a fantastical illusion that can sustain itself for only so long.
Notes from Chad Peterson, Managing Editor on The God of Meat:
In “The God of Meat,” our author has given us a quintet of well-actualized characters, and woven together a pair of storylines in such a way that the lives of each family informs and compliments the intricacies of the other. What impressed me most, however, was the patience of this story. The pacing works exceptionally well, doling out information in perfectly measured beats, and segueing into and out of flashback in a way that kept me engrossed throughout. Reading a story like this serves as a reminder that writing is a craft—and it’s a pleasure to read a piece that has clearly been so carefully crafted.
