Review of “The Angel of Marye’s Heights”

Sherwood Smith, over at The Fix, just posted a favorable review of Paradox 11. Among the pleasantries are some kind words about my own story in the issue, “The Angel of Marye’s Heights.” My favorite snippet:

With brutally vivid detail, the reader is made part of that terrible push up the half-mile hill into the Confederate artillery, and the aftermath, and unexpected grace. The story’s strength is in the rock-solid research made real, the surety with which Livingston creates distinctive characters before they are blown apart.

Makes me sound rather cruel, but ’tis kind in its way. It’s also good to hear given my current engagement with melding my historical research into my fiction.
