Wow Wow Wow -- Blown Away By A Short Story

Blizzard reading, #3 - Gargoyle Issue 54

Tonight, I read a short story that just hit me dead-on. "You Said You'll Walk Beside Me" by Andrei Bhuyan. I am shaken and teary. Incredible for a two-page story. Powerful for what it doesn't say, for what it does say.

I've been a fan of Gargoyle for many years now and every issue amazes me for not only heft -- Issue 54 is 375 pages! -- but for the breadth and diversity of writing within.

I will now go re-read Bhuyan's story and weep again. Wow.
