Rejecting Bush Era, Reclaiming Values The New York Times on Obama’s Inaugural speech. I heard it this way, too, as a strong and relatively detailed refutation of the disastrous missteps of the Bush administration and conservative rule in general.

    Hello! About the review of Trial of Flowers, it`s true, we are a romanian site.I didn`t think that you`ll be so interested in our review so we said nothing 🙂

    I enjoyed very much your story from New Weird anthology ( The lizard of Oooze – by the way have you writed something else in the same universe?) translated some months ago ( and there is a review for that too, on our blog) in romanian, and you had another story, that i liked, translated in one of the numbers from Best Sci-fi antology, with Ruth Nestvold.

    That`s why i was so curios about your novel. It was a good reading but with some flaws, here and there and i hope am not offending you or something. Still i`m waiting for that your second novel in this universe to be published ;)Best regards from our country!

    @1 kyodnb Thank you. I am always interested in reviews, even when I can’t read them. The second FLOWERS novel is on its way, as well.

    As for “The Lizard of Ooze”, see here:
