When Someone Gets It

It's always a tiny, yet visceral thrill when a reviewer says something about something you wrote indicating that they got it.

Charles Tan, at his blogspot had this to say recently about "Outside The Box" (Spicy Slipstream Stories) --

""Outside the Box" by Lynne Jamneck... I wouldn't call it a O. Henry story but its speculative element enters the last scene and changes how you read the entire narrative. Aside from that fact, Jamneck recaptures noir detective elements, from the investigation protocol to eventually getting beaten up. This is one of those pieces that definitely fits in a slipstream anthology."

And when said story happens to be one of your own personal favourites, the compliment is like sweet-sweet-sticky-candy.
