People talking about One Small Step

OneSmallStepCoverdraftTwo wonderful, comprehensive reviews of One Small Step have appeared in the past week, which is always delightful to see. Thank you so much to the people who take the time to review our work!

Just today, Foz Meadows shared a review of One Small Step at A Dribble of Ink. Among many other very kind words and insightful discussion of the stories, Foz says:

…I found this to be a highly enjoyable, moving anthology of works by Australian women; and particularly for me, as an Aussie expat, the regular touches of Australiana that creep into the stories – references to eucalyptus, kangaroos, wombats and other such Antipodean things – served as a pleasant reminder that my country of origin is ripe for SFFnal interpretation…

and

…as a showcasing of Australian female talent, it’s both an important and extremely worthwhile anthology. Recommended reading for anyone interested in SFF with a feminist bent, and a strong incentive to keep an eye on Fablecroft Press’s output.

Foz looks at each story individually, and I particularly enjoyed these snippets:

…gorgeous writing, strong characterisation and powerful emotional angle…

…an honest, meaningful exploration of love and motherhood…

…an eerie, powerful story about the nature of pain and what it means to be human … the theme, setting and execution all work together to make something truly memorable…

…funny, poignant and breathtaking: a perfect, original story about humanity, agency, the end of the world and what comes after…

Thank you so much Foz!

Also in the past few days, Karen Burnham reviewed One Small Step in The Cascadia Subduction Zone literary journal, saying (again, among many other things focussing on individual stories!):

…There are many rewards inside for those approaching with a mind open to broadening…

…my expectations were blown wide open…

Many thanks, Karen!
