Smashwords book reviews by Dan Baldwin

  • Stories from the Cantina on May 26, 2011
    (no rating)
    I didn't even know what magic realism was till I read Stories from the Cantina. Now I'm hooked on the genre. I can think of no better introduction than this book of short stories. Each one stands on its own, but read in sequence they tell a remarkable story. Harvey's skill as a writer makes you not only read, but read again and again - each time with a new appreciation, understanding and enjoyment of the work. These are great stories. Buy your ticket now, step on board and get ready to enjoy a great ride. Dan Baldwin/Author:Caldera series of Westerns
  • Nicky, Sasquatch, and Pink Elephants on June 29, 2012
    (no rating)
    Dan Baldwin: Comparisons to M*A*S*H and even Catch 22 are inevitable and appropriate. I hope Micheal Green is busy writing a follow up to this hilarious work. Highly recommended!
