Some Reviews:

The Crow and The Dwarf

Review by: Bonnie Turner on July 04, 2012 : starstarstarstarstar
I was unprepared for the emotional impact of this well-written short story, The Crow and The Dwarf, and plan to read more of Ms. Moore's excellent stories that tug the heartstrings.

Happy For A While

Great Voice!

Great voice and a nice little twist at the end that literally gave me chills. I wasn't sure if I should love the main character or loathe her, but her voice sucked me in right to the end. I highly recommend this story!

The Stoat

Review by: Bernard Fancher on Feb. 08, 2012 : starstarstarstarstar

Excellent story, but then the first place fiction award might have been the tip-off. (Except that I downloaded this selection some time ago and forgot all about the above description, until coming back here just now to put in a few good words of my own.)

The Stoat of the title refers to the brown (imperfect) phase of the ermine weasil, as well perhaps to the protagonist; as such it serves as a clue to the reader. Perhaps I am reading too much into it, but the last line did seem to subtly emphasize the point--that purity, if not perfection, remains an elusive goal.

Well done.

An Honest Woman

Review by: A.M. Gray on Feb. 01, 2012 : starstarstarstar
A quick glimpse inside a failing marriage. And a woman searching for self worth in the arms of younger men. Worth the read.

Einstein

Review by: Bernard Fancher on July 04, 2012 : starstarstarstar

"I want to meet a man who can say something original."

So begins the story. It is a compelling start, for who of us would not wish the same? And so I was instantly hooked, and my mind raced with possibilities that might follow. Even though the ensuing narrative would surprise me, that isn't a bad thing. Who wants to read something entirely predictable?

Even so, I soon had a handle on the character and her situation, inasmuch as the story seemed already familiar, being reminiscent of one J.D. Salinger might have written, updated to the modern age.

I could go on and expound and explicate, but the story is short enough. Read it for yourself!

 Dancing Lights

5.0 out of 5 stars Making every word count, November 15, 2012

This review is from: DANCING LIGHTS (Kindle Edition)

Inge Moore's tale of a young pregnant woman's overwhelming despair made quite the impression on me. Dancing Lights is a beautifully written short story, with a minimum of well-chosen words providing an unforgettable scenario, one that seems insurmountable but all too soon arrives at the twisted yet satisfying ending I had not expected. Well done, author!
