Reviewed: Heroes and Civilians

A nice little referrer email comment reminder thingy cropped up in my inbox this morning. Seems that Thomas DeMary from PANK magazine has done a review Heroes and Civilians, which the more frequently visited among you will know as my recently released available-for-free-download short story collection.

Mr. DeMary is generous in his review: complimentary without effusiveness, critical without stridency. Warmed the cockles it did. Made me giggle with pleasure it did. I may even have blushed.

“Ford showcases an enjoyment of writing, allowing his imagination to roam free while the watchful eye of the craftsman, aware and wary of belaboring the point, chaperones the fantastic,” Mr. DeMary said. “Adam Ford exudes a control of the flash form, as well as an adherence to the principles of fiction, in a way not seen before by this reviewer,” he also said. How utterly lovely of him.

I was most tickled by the categorisation of this review too, which not only sits within PANK‘s “reviews” category, but which also sits within their “Bright Young Things” category. Lookit! I’m a bright young thing! I’m not sure whether to be more chuffed over the “bright” or the “young” tag with that one.

You can check out the full review on the pages of PANK, and should it whet your appetite you can also head over to the appropriate section of this blog to obtain a free-to-download copy of Heroes and Civilians to love and hug and call him George.
