Two extremely fine stories. Renee’s tale was brief but packed a real punch. I found it interesting that she’s an artist, because the story itself was vividly visual: I could actually see what was happening in my mind’s eye. I was anticipating the other three horsemen turning up, but she left interpretation up to the reader, which was certainly the best way to go. And Copper Smith’s tale was dark, and rather sad, I felt. I felt a twist of empathy for 19 in the end, and indeed for the main character. Clever. Copper and I have things in common, too. I also write crime, and some erotica, and I play guitar, while he plays banjo!
Aloha Terror Tribe!
Great stories! Need art for that wall? Hmmm! Well… Let’s see what we can do about that.

“Horseman” was excellent, a fine monster tale. Beautifully written – understated, physical. And nicely read.
