short stories are really tough to write and such a pleasure to read - well done one and all, especially Simon's brave little nightlight; it practically brought a tear to my eyes! Backed and now looking forward to the next... Sarah

I have to admit I'm a big fan of Year Zero writers, a wonderful idea, and writing at its finest. I back this with pleasure.

Thirteen Shadows Waiting for Sunrise is a fine study in masterful writing, capturing emotion, tugging at the heart, and opening the reader's imagination. It's almost as if the reader is part of the book - which indeed, they are. On my shelf and Today's Pick I Like for 12/21/09:

L. Anne Carrington, "The Cruiserweight"

I applaud those folk who can paint a powrful picture in few words, or cause a question to spring to the lips. Plenty here to delight and amuse. Jim D Serpent's Blood
