I really like:
Thomas R. Willits’ “Why do Willows Weep” Strangely that one still “haunts” me. Every time I think about it, it makes me think all the more — if that makes sense.
That makes a lot of sense to me, Clyde!
“Dragon Scales” by Slawomir Rapala. That was one of my printed out ones that sit amongst my ever increasing pile of BwS stories. I pull it regularly from the pile and re-read it often.
I like the way the dragon is characterized. It never says a word, but we learn how it must feel about its predicament. And the way the dragon intervenes at the end and yet maintains its dignity is simply perfect.
I just couldn’t go past Katts and Dawgs by Roberto Sanhueza. Sheer joy reading those. Another on my printed out pile.
Agreed... What I like is that the characters are good-hearted and yet interesting. Even the “bad guys” are misguided rather than cardboard villains, and the “good guys” seek justice, not retribution.
Thanks for the feedback, Clyde! I hope others respond, as well.
