Agnimalya March 2019 Critique
Tapti lives alone, but meets a handsome stranger who plays heavenly music, Korak. As a bond forms between them, he tells his tale, and reveals Tapti’s previous existence as her past comes crashing back. I liked this one. As romance, with the fantasy elements combined in it beats anything I’m competent to write hands down!
The Dark Lands:
Ghanshyam and Kavita have bought a new property, well, new to them, but old for the mysterious cult that haunts it! What happens to the loveless pair during a night’s stay there?
This one was chilling, with interesting main characters adding value to the story yet those same characters who did not evoke sympathy from the reader.
This is a cute little gem, of a dog being fed by his mistress! Short, sweet, to the point!
The occupant of an old mansion is flummoxed my a loud thumping noise, and every day he grows weaker while the thumping grows louder! Could the house be alive??
Coming Kingdom, March 2019 Critique
Little Tinni is given a mysterious gift, a jeweled box, by her father, but Tinni is unable to walk after surviving a terrible accident! She meets a new friend, a fairy, who lives in the box, and soon finds new strength in her recovery! This was good. Short, to the point, and it showed the plot as it unfolded!
Beware mirrors sold by strange women! Rekha finds that her new catch is giving her odd dreams! Does her nightly vision merely disturb, or warn her of real danger from the mirror? The ending for this one was fitting, and ominous!
What is the menace to be found on the planet Xorona? Will Jenny soon find her enslaved clones moving out and about after such a simple thing as discarding a bandage? Surely there’s a better way!
A desperate and jealous man wants his wife back, and to do it, he acquires a magic candy to regain her love. But it’s monkeyshines when a hungry simian takes it from him! I love the way this plays out! Go, monkeys!!
SBP&B March 2019 Critique
This issue contains eleven picture-poems on various related topics, some centered around spiritualism. While I’m neither spiritual nor religious, I find this both informative and a good read, with cool images from the Authoress’s digital canvas!
