Crowded Magazine's debut issue (which includes
my short story "Athlete's Foot") earned a positive review from Tangent. They seemed to enjoy my work as well:
"The story is lighthearted and an entertaining read and I love the way Ferris caught the mindset of [protagonist] Tyler as an athlete desperately trying to stay in the sport he loves; the character is a major strength of the story."
Also of note in the review is "Mirrorball" by Jason Helmandollar, which reviewer Chuck Rothman says is "a strong, highly emotional story that I hope doesn't get overlooked when awards are considered." I concur, it's well worth your time.
