July 11, 2016 Addendum: Well.... Kicking around tonight, I checked on my Goodreads account. I GOT A REVIEW!!! For my story in Kzine Issue 14 (available on Amazon)....
"After reading Betty's 'Arachnophile' earlier this year I was keen to read more and she didn't disappoint with 'This Narrow Escape'-the shortest of the stories here but also my favourite too. 'The Blind Room', 'Fundraiser' and particularly 'The Weber Defense' were all enjoyable, in particular the final short by John Sies that features an alien invasion and a barbeque!- trust me, you need to read it, it's great fun."
