I’m very happy to see that “The Tracks that Tower over Valleys”, my first ever sold short story, received a good review over at the British Fantasy Society site. Glen Mehn summarized it best here:
“Harry Markov’s “The Tracks that Tower over Valleys” takes us to a future Bulgaria which echoes Dickens’ age of uncertainty for the poor: The entire country has been turned into a theme park and the poor scratch out their living by trying to terrify tourists – until real terrorists step in.”
Mehn goes on to share his overall impression of the short chapbook “Pandemonium: Fire” with the following: “These three stories are short, and at 80 pence won’t break the bank by any means. They show a great breadth of imagination and mastery of the short form. This is an excellent companion to its sister anthology but stands alone as well.”
Not a bad way to greet 2013. I’m happy that this little gem edited by Jared Shurin and Anne C Perry (the wonderful team behind Jurassic London) got coverage.
