About Max G. Bernard

Max G. Bernard is the pen name of a writer with around 45 years of writing, editing, publishing, and journalism experience. He wrote for student, "underground," and radical newspapers in the 60's and 70's. He lives in the Midwestern region of Woodstock Nation, and is residing in the 1960's until something better comes along. He is involved in writing science fiction, mysteries, weird cross genre stories, and semi-autobiographical pieces. A fan of Bob Dylan's music, Alfred Hitchcock's movies, and Philip K. Dick's science fiction, he is married, with two children. He is a fervent opponent of DRM (digital rights management) in publishing. He agrees with Tom Robbins that it is "never too late to have a happy childhood," and with the spirit of the statement, "Be realistic, demand the impossible."

Reviews of If Only by Max G. Bernard

Doug Pardee reviewed on March 15, 2010

Interesting premise, gratuitous twist ending, but overall satisfying.

The left hook out of the blue is not a new literary trick. But it still leaves the reader dazed and confused as he tries to pick himself off the canvas thirty-five seconds into the first round.

Ha. Ha. Ha. Very nicely written. Classic Flash. (Actually, my future self comes back (even fatter! Sigh...) and tells me to stop writing because my prose stinks, and will only get worse.)

Cuuuuute. Good formatting (although there is a stray number 2 at the end?) and good editing. Bit of silliness here; nothing wrong with that.

Well-worked story with a good punchline - though I'm not sure it is as much fun to read a second time.
