A Few Good Conversations (Well, At Least 10) by Hans Taylor

To say that 2014 was the best year of my life would be unfair to years 1997 through to 2013, and all the years that followed. But it was certainly the . . .

CORVUS

Weblit, in every sense of the term

By Eli James, editor

Aug 30, 2010: "Listen, sugar, some things never change. Once a nigger lover, always a nigger lover. Only now they call them augers."

I have put off writing this review for the longest time. I finished Corvus at the tail end of 2009, and then had a few conversations with Lee, its author, not too long afterwards.

"What did you set out to do?" I asked.

ROCINANTE

Wholesome and Risky All At Once

By GreenGlass, member

Nov 30, 2008: I read this story awhile back and I thought it was great, so I might as well add a review. Somewhere I got the impression that the story would be conservative, but it also turned out to be down-to-earth, sexy, inspiring, exciting, and sometimes edgy! Even the places where it wandered into the subject of religion seemed a bit unorthodox to me, and I didn’t feel pressured to agree with the character’s conclusions on that subject. Maybe it still is somewhat wholesome, but I throughly enjoyed this tale anyway.
