A Week Off

After a week's rest and relaxation (hence no Flash Fiction on Friday), I logged on again today to find some great comments about Murky Depths in general and my story Looking In, Looking Out in particular.

Co-editor Matt Wallace had this to say:
This glaring low-res snapshot doesn't come close to doing "Looking In, Looking Out" by Gareth D. Jones justice. This was one of the very first stories I pushed for the issue. Inventive, funny, poignant. But that layout just takes it to another level. *** gorgeous beyond all reason, man. It's easily my favorite presentation of any piece in the 'zine. Any piece in any 'zine, in fact. First big house I buy, I'm having Terry blow this one up to ridiculous scale so I can hang it on my wall.


There were also nice words from Neil Benyon, Anne Stringer and Jonathan C Gillespie, who called it 'interesting' a 'standout' and 'runaway hit'.

It was interesting as I said - to expand: it was also well executed and it brightened up my journey into work - always a good thing.

The last line is just perfect.

I saw how this was going to be laid out immediately I read it, but of course I had to let the rest of the editorial team make their own unbiased decisions first.
