  • In the Mirror (A Short Story) on Sep. 07, 2011

    A very enjoyable read. I liked many of the images that were so deftly brought to life by the author--especially the little detail about the boy tracing the mirror's ornately designed wooden frame with his stubby forefinger. This simple tactile description seemed to ground the story in reality, even while the events became magical.
