"Certainly an interesting story, though I was a bit weighed down by your introduction which did not catch my attention well enough. This seems like it could be made into a novel... At times you may have tried too hard to insert your own experiences into the story. They add a nice dose of reality, but one does not want to be too transparent. The story reminded me at first of old-style science fiction like Isaac Asimov, but when the magic occured it took on more of a fantasy tone. Description could be a bit more smooth, but that seemed to improve as the story progressed. Keep Chugging! " -- MithralEnder.
"First of all, this isn't my genre or cup or tea. However, I found it to be well written. I just felt like I was sitting in a classroom watching an interaction with a professor and his student. If this is what you were going for, you succeeded. If not, you need to spice it up a bit. Just my opinion. Keep writing..." -- D. G. Williford.
"As a writer who also posts here, I must admit that I am a real fan of your work. I only hope that I can spend more time writing short stories like you. Unfortunately I must stick to the genre I work with now. You, please keep writing as it fits you well. " -- Skyler Drevan.
"Wow! What a wonderful thing to say to a fellow writer! Thank you so much for your comments. They were greatly appreciated." -- Michael, Detroit, MI.
"Interesting theme and very well crafted. You are a wonderfully gifted and talented writer with good command of language and style. I can'r say enough of your terrific use of dialogue throughout the story. I feel it is essential in dveloping characters and supporting the plot. You definitely have mastered this art. I also liked the ending. Very nice job, Michael." -- Gregory Christiano, Hopatcong, NJ, USA.
"Hey, Gregory! In a land where reviews are rare, your comments are greatly appreciated. I was thinking of making this a longer piece, perhaps a novel or novella and continuing the story of Marsellus. Who knows, maybe after I've finished up on my current works I will go back and edit it up a little. Take care." -- Michael Harris, Detroit, MI.
