Old Story, Good Review

Back in January 2000, Analog magazine published a short-short of mine, "Whose Millennium?" The story has been available for a while as an ebook for anyone who wanted to read it after its original publication. The point of the story was that the new millennium did not begin in 2000, or even 2001, but won't arrive until 2239. Just check a Hebrew calendar.

Last week, the reviewer who writes the Red Adept's Kindle Book Review Blog, Lynn, got in touch with me. She had read "Whose Millennium?" on the Kindle and had decided to review it, and she asked me for some comments on the story.

I'm glad to say that she liked the story. If you'd like to see what I said and why she gave the story five stars out of five, check out her latest review post here: Short Stories.
