  • The Nude on Nov. 16, 2009
    (no rating)
    This is a very well written, short and sharp story that is very engaging. It has all the rhythms of a very experienced writer. Do not skip over this one. Well done, Lawrence Thomas.
  • The Dark Side on Nov. 22, 2011

    This is tight, breathless writing that carries the reader to the end... and rewards with a good last line. No cliched twists for this capable writer. Well done.
  • The Visitation on Oct. 15, 2013

    Brian Bigelow builds tension on top of emotion in this very brief but powerful story of love, loss, and redemption. Simple things like a cup of tea or the page of a book become charged with the loneliness of this widower, whose name readers do not know, but to whose feelings they can relate.
