A Critique of Pure Reasoner

“Black-Eyed Susan” by Thomas Pluck is short and mean and well-written. I don’t think I’ve read anything by this author before, but I’ll be on the lookout for his name now.
-James Reasoner

James Reasoner had kind words for the entire Beat to a Pulp: Hardboiled anthology, but those words just lit a spark under this new writer’s hind end… I told Mr. Reasoner I’d make sure he and everyone else would have no trouble finding my work in the future. Being singled out with Glenn Gray and Wayne Dundee is rather stunning, more so than I was already for being selected for this collection with so many great writers in the first place.

  1. You're on a roll, sir. Nice to see, and an honor to be appearing in some of those places alongside you.

  2. Heh, you're not slowing down either, man. You're on a tear. Black-Eyed Susan is a very good story. Happy for you that James Reasoner liked it.
