Dec 19, 2015Once again, the Blue Crow has taken to the skies and carried an array of wonderful tales with it. The variation of genres, styles, and themes is what makes this publication so special; from playful prose and literary fiction to love stories and comedy, from philosophical suspense to social critique. There is even one story which is completely lost for words. Blue Crow Magazine will leave you pondering, long after you have finished it. The crow will fly for new horizons, but its spirit will stay with you.
Dec 5, 2015A wonderful range of stories to suit every taste. Perfect for holiday reading.
Nov 17, 2015Issue 4 of Blue Crow Magazine comprises thirty-six short stories by authors from around the English-speaking world. Edited by Andrew Scobie and published by the Blue Crow Press, Sydney, Australia, it is a beautifully-produced 288-page book, the cover and layout a tribute to the quality of Matthew Ward's design. There is one melancholy aspect of this publication: New Zealand author Geoff Bolton, whose story Risk is included in the collection, passed away at the age of seventy-four while the book was in production. Blue Crow Magazine Issue 4 would be worth buying for Geoff's story alone. But many of the other contributions are of comparable quality, and the range is remarkable. Some of the stories are traditionally structured while others verge on the avant-garde; they cover a variety of subjects and genres; some are sad, some disturbing, some amusing, some all of these things and more. The first item in the book is a short and characteristic fable by my old friend Boris Glikman and the... More > last - apart from the tongue-in-cheek Silent Story by Justin Bridges - is another short piece, Finding Hummus in the Fridge by Alun Williams, an unsettling first-person narrative with a twist in the tail. To pick out any one of these stories for special mention is invidious, because most of them could merit such selection, but if you've ever been close to a woman going through menopause you'll find Karen Robiscoe's highly imaginative PMS Dia-Tribe outstanding. Karen's story is both hilarious and well-observed. I loved it.< Less
Nov 16, 2015Impressive looking tome, more a book than a magazine. The words therein are of a similar quality. How fortunate it arrived in time for Christmas.
