On GoodReads, honestly, I really should be giving Reality Glitch four stars. It's an anthology, and no one is blown away by every single story in a collection like this - especially when it ranges so widely across the SF and Fantasy genres. But I just can't bring myself to do that. This is a quality collection from a number of differing authors, with one common denominator: every single one of them is at least very well written, and several are gem quality.
As one might guess from the title, they have a common theme, a glitch in reality, or whatever 'normal' might be for the characters.
I have favourites, so many that they make up more than half of the collection. Jo Sparkes' Split Decision, which creeps up on the reader like a strangling vine. Michael Gardner's Writer's Block, a brilliant and funny and instructive peach of a story. Gerard Bianco's Old Cyrus, something of a classic, perfectly presented. James Fields' Liquorice Shoelace, which makes one's head spin. Emily Russell's Glass Houses, another classic with charming whimsy and a razor's edge - yeah, I don't know how she does it either! Luke Evart's Flowers in the Graveyard that will give you that frisson of impending disaster, and you still don't see it coming until you're six feet under.
As I said, my favourites. These were the ones that really blew me away - but I have to say again, the other stories, in other company, are winners in their own right. Even the forward!
For those who may be wondering, the genres include, I think, magic realism, cyberpunk, literary fantasy, mythic or fairytale fantasy, high fantasy, robopunk, horror, timeslip, transdimensional, and a couple of mashups. For my personal taste, some of them were out of my comfort genre. But I cannot do other than give this brilliant collection five stars.

Read information about the authorBorn in Rison, Maryland, which is 'no sir' spelled backwards. Studied martial arts -- and lacking any natural ability, made every mistake along the way. Eventually the old adage, “a white belt is a black belt that never quit” proved itself.
I've published articles, watched commercials I wrote on television, and helped on set with various projects and corporate videos. Past member of the Pro Football Writer's Association, when I covered the Arizona Cardinals for a popular fan website. Unofficially (very unofficially) the first to interview Emmitt Smith as a Cardinal.
Did a short stint on a local children's television show, wrote pilots for some wonderful producers, and have been in development on a feature script of mine. Four feature scripts, actually. I'll let you know when we get the green light.
Discovered the wonderful world of teaching at The Film School at SCC. There is so much talent in the world. It's an honor and joy to facilitate creativity.
At this very moment we (the husband and Oscar the dog) live in Portland, Oregon. It's sort of like living in Rivendale -- without the ears.
