Over at SEA MINOR, Nigel Bird takes a look at my Warsaw set novelette Red Esperanto and says:
‘Red Esperanto … practically drips in the alcoholic sweat of the journalist Luke Case, not to mention some of his other bodily fluids. ‘
Meanwhile, over in Italy, LIBERI DI SCRIVERE have a gander at Red Esperanto‘s Italian translation, Rosso Esperanto.
‘Luke Case è un bel personaggio, ben caratterizzato, dotato di un’ aura dannata e romantica ma fondamentalmente simpatico che ritroveremo in altri 4 racconti della collana Atlantis.’
Which I’ve been told is also very nice!
‘I’m a sucker for Brazill’s singularly laconic style and his hapless heroes — or is it too grand to call them heroes? Main characters? Saps? No, they’re seldom suckers — just not particularly well prepared, thoughtful or lucky.’
Thanks to all of the reviewers!
And more … Red Esperanto is currently number THREE is the Predators & Editors Short Story Poll.
