A clear example of great writing. This brilliant little gem accomplishes more in a couple of pages than others do in full novels.

Well, it had to happen eventually. After reading and reviewing numerous works on Sashwords, I've finally come across a story that's similar to one of my own. Not that I'm accusing Mr Cameron of plagiarism, far from it (his story appeared on Smashwords before I'd even signed up to the site).
It's interesting to see how another writer, particularly one as eloquent as Mr Cameron, approaches the same basic idea. Some things we both did the same (female protagonist, story told in the present tense from a first person perspective, very similar word count...) and yet the stories are very different in other respects. I don't think it would be fair for me to score this work but I did enjoy his 'take' on the idea very much.

A very short, short story but not short on appeal. It was intriguing fro the get go and the anticipation really leads you through to the end.

What can I say?
It is a wonderfully well written tale creating a vague malaise for the principle character right up until the end, when he is finally shot of it.
Well worth reading for the story and the pleasure of the words used.

In the interest of full disclosure, Graeme Cameron is my writing partner. But it's a chicken-and-the-egg dilemma to explain, because my praise is because he's this good, not a by-product of friendship.

'Breakfast in Paris' is one of my favorite pieces of his. Excellent, excellent, and then an excellent twist.

Wow! I was so not expecting the story to down this path. In the beginning it felt like a nervous meeting between two people who didn't know each other very well but had agreed to meet. It sure caught me off guard. I'll definitely be waiting for more.
