"Adamson's Rock" Reviewed

My short story collection "Adamson's Rock and Other Stories" is featured today on Red Adept's Kindle Book Review Blog. I'm delighted to report that she gave this effort 5-stars, saying among other things:

I have enjoyed this author’s writing style in his previous work, and he does not disappoint with this newest publication. His sentences flow nicely; his descriptions are terse, yet adequate; his dialogue is realistic . . .

Sometimes, the sum really is greater than the parts. All I can add is that when finished with this collection, I felt satisfied, and I knew that a few of the stories would come back to me now and then at odd moments.

A frequent contributor to Kindleboards.Com who specializes in reviewing "Indie" author's work, I first came to Red's acquaintance when she reviewed my novel Sumner Gardens. Since that time, she has set up her own Wordpress blog as well as begun making her reviews available as a Kindle subscription service.

Along the way, she has made many friends among Kindle readers and authors, and more than a few enemies -- authors who have been unhappy with her sometimes unflattering reviews or her strong opinions about the way some authors package or price their books.

At any rate, I couldn't help but notice she gave Dan Brown's latest a mere 2 ¾ stars. She gave "Adamson's Rock and Other Stories" 5-stars.

Take that, Dan Brown.

Thanks, Aaron. Like I said before . . . I'll take validation wherever I can find it.
