Jackie at Fantastic Reviews Blog recently judged a book battle between Electricity and Other Dreams and Karen Lord’s The Best of All Possible Worlds.
Congratulations to Karen Lord for advancing on to the championship round! And big thanks to Jackie for these kind words about my book:
Electricity & Other Dreams takes me to the world of magical realism. In “How the Weatherman Beat the Storm” we watch the weather girl as “she tumbled up into the wind and was gone.” It happily reminded me of Gabriel García Márquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude when Remedios the Beauty flies into the sky holding a sheet that she was pinning on the clothesline. Just as good and just as amazing! There is humor within the stories as well as horror. Give me another short story to read!
