I love people. (And then there are those I don’t love, but that’s another post.) A year ago or so, I was “discovering” online writing and discovered some writers that blew my mind. The list is long but I’ll be brief and incomplete: Tony O’Neill, Elizabeth Ellen, Scott Wrobel, A.S. King and T.J Forrester were writing stuff that effectively made me put down the print journals I was reading for a while. T.J. Forrester’s stories showed me (read this great one on Storyglossia, a journal I keep meaning to post more about) a man so thoroughly talented and and so heartfelt in his work that I sort of cyberstalked him. He handled it pretty well. He also runs this great site called Five Star Literary Stories, where an editor of an online literary journal nominates a story that he/she loves for review and then T.J. has another writer write a review of said story. It’s a wonderful addition to the rich world of online lit. Right now, they have a fantastic review by Clifford Garstang of an E.C. Osondu story from Guernica. Check it out.
