There have been two new reviews of my work published online in the last few days. Firstly, Andrew J. McKiernan reviewed Living With the Dead over at Thirteen O’Clock, in very complimentary terms. To quote:
It shows Martin Livings to be an author who enjoys tugging on his readers’ heartstrings just as much as he enjoys severing them. Twenty years is a long time to have been publishing short stories but, on the strength of Living With the Dead, I’m hoping that in twenty years I’ll be waxing lyrical about Martin Livings’ second retrospective collection.
The full review is here:
First up it’s ‘Black Peter’ by Martin Livings; an extremely powerful story with issues of race, and hatred thereof, very much at its heart. Beautifully written, with a strong and clear message, this is a great start to the issue.
Again, full review (covering every story in the issue!) is here:
