Women’s Fiction/Short Stories

What She Was SayingWhat She Was Saying
By Marjorie Maddox
Publisher: Fomite
Published: March 2017
ISBN: 978-1942515685
ASIN: B06XBGPLTG
Genre: Fiction, Short Stories, Women’s Fiction, Literary Fiction
Formats Available For Review: Print (limited quantities, only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers in the U.S.)

In these powerful stories, What She Was Saying softens the already thin line between hope and hopelessness, between perseverance and despair, between what can and cannot be said. Throughout the collection, diverse women startle, question, comfort, and proclaim, compelling readers to confront a company of others: a young woman who mistakes a Jehovah’s Witness for her therapist; a mother who shields an ill daughter; an elderly artist who sculpts her adopted family; a daughter of an itinerant preacher who plays her role; a lonely copy editor who fakes bruises; and—in front of many witnesses—a parachutist who jumps to her death. This collection also echoes the historical and literary voices of Rachel Robinson, Nora’s daughter in A Doll’s House, the wives of famous men named Peter, Lot’s daughters, and soldiers Jessica Lynch and Lynndie England. You will hear voices raised in prayer, lowered to whispers, slowed by fear, and silenced by anger. A finalist for the Katherine Anne Porter and Eludia book awards—as well as a semifinalist for Black Lawrence Press’s Hudson, Eastern Washington University’s Spokane, and Leapfrog Press’s book prizes—What She Was Saying gives voice to the lives we all need to hear.

Crime/Horror Short Stories – Dangerous Women

dangerous-womenDangerous Women
By Robb. T. White
Publisher: Ravynheart Publishing
Published: September 2016
ASIN: B01LZ8MSD0
Genre: Crime/Horror Short Stories
Formats Available For Review: kindle

Barbie dolls and inviting friends to backyard tea parties. Some, like the twins of “The Birthmark,” are sweet—and cunning as Norwegian rats, a truth the boyfriend of one learns too late. “The Gypsy Girl from Bluefield” went to the school of hard knocks, became a lap dancer, and then took her sugar daddy for a long ride—all the way to Rio. Sandy LaFramboise of “Finding Sandy Biggers” thought she could outwit a professional jewelry thief, a psychopath, who would never stop looking for her. The sharp-eyed narrator of “Blackmail Is My Business” thought he had the smarts to run a scam past a rich man’s wife and he, too, learned he’s just a minnow in a world of sharks. All the stories feature women who are as tough, hungry, and dangerous as the men who try to use them or control them. It’s an entertaining ride for all readers who prefer violence, crime, and mayhem as vicarious pleasures.

Literary Fiction – Seven Eleven Forgotten and Other Stories

Seven Eleven Forgotten and Other StoriesSeven Eleven Forgotten and Other Stories
By Barnaby Hazen
Publisher: Seven Eleven Stories
Published: December 2015
ISBN: 978-0692586600
ASIN: B019M86ONC
Genre: Literary Fiction, Short Stories
Formats Available For Review: Print (limited quantities, only available to qualified reviewers and bloggers in the U.S.), Pdf

The innovative use of a common theme, convenience store phenomena, oddly weaves these nine strange tales together. The book follows a recurring character throughout the collection, Alex Aronovich, while he flees a distasteful life in Los Angeles—only to find Moscow every bit as unforgiving of his knack for romantic folly.

Four stories (“Seven Eleven Ceremony,” “Crash: Seven Eleven!” “Seven Eleven on a Boat,” and “Seven Eleven Forgotten”) revolve around Alex Aronovich—a talented but profoundly discouraged soul, searching listlessly for a connection to the world around him.

In the last of these tales (“Seven Eleven Forgotten”), Alex finds himself binge drinking to the point of hallucinations, and has an unfortunate run-in with Ana, a sharp, unscrupulous ex-girlfriend. These events lead him to what seems an inevitable trip overseas, where he finds that while the scenery is different, and perhaps more fitting to his malaise, the disorientation driving his condition remains a chronic obstacle.

Other stories (such as “A TIA for Gia,” and “Princess 7”) dance eclectically and playfully around the same convenience store theme–as a painter’s subject used repeatedly, from never the same point of view.
