    Just read your story “Still Life” in the Daily Science Fiction emailer. A perfectly brilliant piece of literature that works on many levels. Bravo!

  2. Thanks, Richard. I’m so glad you enjoyed it!

  3. Hi
    I just read Still Life on the DSF page.

    Wow this is a great story. Mark my word it has award caliber all over
    it! Something about it just tripped all the right switches and I
    couldn’t stop reading.

    Do you remember Brian Aldiss’ Super Toys? This is so much like an
    updated version. Better in so many ways.

    My name is Paul Cole I host a weekly program on our community supported
    radio station WRFR lp/fm in Rockland Maine (wrfr.org)

    I love to talk about science and often take time to read some of the
    fiction that I have found that was especially good.

    I would love to read this story at some time in the future if you
    wouldn’t mind. It wouldn’t be commercial, just to have listeners
    entertained by good science fiction.

    I do have an archive that has recordings of my latest broadcasts
    (beammeuppodcast.com). All very low key. News, views reviews and stories.

    That’s about the long and short of it. Of course with the reading I
    like to tell where I found the story so it and others can be found and
    enjoyed and where they can learn more about the author (even though I
    like to have a bio as well to add to the story) and thats it.

    Thanks for your time and great fiction!

    I have begun reading Mz Wise’s very moving tale “Still Life” on WRFR our community radio station in Rockland Maine. Anyone outside the listening area can listen in on wrfr.org. The program starts from 4 and runs until 5 – Saturdays. If you would rather not be tied down, I do put up a podcast file of each program. on Beammeuppodcast.com. Part 1 is available in episode 312.

    Enjoy and thank you A.C.

    I’m sure you’re way past simple reader praise but I just listened to your story last girl theory on pseudopod and I just wanted to tell you how much i enjoyed it. It grabbed me right away and never let go. I liked the open endedness of it very much. Thanks for the great read (listen).

  6. Hi, Joseph. I’m so glad you enjoyed Final Girl Theory! Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi, I’ve watched! Last Girl Theory last night and liked it very much. Hope it’s made into a movie one day. If that happens, which movie(s) you’d think come closest as stand-ins for the Kaleidoscope?
    Best,
    S.

  8. I’m so glad you enjoyed Final Girl Theory. I can’t really think of any movies that would make good stand-ins for Kaleidoscope. Ideally, they’d make a movie within a movie, if it ever did become a film. Thanks!

    I just finished Venice Burning in the Future Lovecraft anthology and wanted to say what an amazing story it is. The imagery is simply wonderful, and having finished I immediately came to find out where I could get more of your work. Thank you for an excellent read!

  11. Hi, Cat! Thank for the kind words regarding Venice Burning – I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I’m particularly fond of that story. It’s going to be podcast by Pseudopod sometime next year, and I can’t wait to hear what they do with it.

  12. I also really enjoyed Final Girl Theory and the “Bucklin Mills” interview. I think I still have the “Buck, Mills, Berry, Me” poster somewhere. Great reference.

  13. I’m so glad you enjoyed Final Girl Theory and Bucklin Mills. I wondered whether anyone would get the Buck, Mills, Berry, Me reference. I’m glad someone did!

    Loved Where Dead Men Go to Dream. Just read it Weird Fiction Review. It really is a brilliant story. Cheers.

  15. Thanks, Mike! I’m so glad you enjoyed Where Dead Men Go to Dream.

    “Still Life” is a great story, AC … evocative, visceral. I enjoyed they way you engaged the sense of touch throughout the telling. And now … I’m on a hunt for your other work. I read earlier pieces but there are many gaps to fill. I’m looking forward to the journey.
