    This author has an ability to describe something that has happened to all of us (the cut thumb) in such a way that it's as if it's the first time it's ever happened. What a gift to be able to take a description of a bandaid and turn it into a complete picture of a man's life ('black with sweat-salt and country dust'). I also loved the details of the birds - I really felt like I knew this place, this life.
    I've had the great fortune to read other works by this author and this is just a taste of what he can do!

    This is a good story - it has a nice sense of creepy inevitability about it. I would have liked to know more about the roots of the main character's feelings, though I think his personality itself does a good part of the job. The writing is very good, but sometimes I thought the language was unnecessarily complex.

    Martin’s Pond is a thought-provoking and beautifully written story. Martin is an intriguing character, memorable and complex enough that after reading this I’d love to see him in a full-length novel. I enjoyed being immersed in the author’s rich descriptions of the landscape where this wonderfully dark story takes place.

    Eerie book

    This short story reminds me so much of myself that I find it hard to review it. I too have special places that most folks don't know about. However, when the space is discovered, the writer takes a different turn. I liked this book as I felt the character development was so very real and the book so nicely written.
