I got in on this a little late last month, but I'm ready and rarin' to go this month. Sort of. Be gentle, I've never done a full tour before.
This month's victim ... er, target is Dragons, Knights, and Angels Magazine. This is an on-line magazine dedicated to Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy. Truth be told, I have a short story brewing that will likely wind up in their submission box sooner or later (that is, if I ever get my posterier in gear and finish it).
One of the stories that caught my attention in this month's issue was An Epitaph for Shangri La. It was an interesting read about a group of space explorers who find a seemingly idyllic paradise only with no inhabitants. The mystery of what happened to the people of Shangri La is slowly revealed through the story as the people from Earth try to piece it all together.
I'll be honest, I'm not sure if I liked this entirely. It was a thinly veiled critique of modern society. It raised valid points, but a little more subtlety could have made it a truly excellent, kick-you-in-the-gut story.
Anyway, I'll be posting links and thoughts about other stories in the current issue over the next couple of days. Be sure to check out the other sites in the tour:
