  1. I really enjoyed “Hands Free” I felt like half psychiatrist, half voyeur while reading it. Like some poor soul was reaching out for help. The forced super hero really turns the “with great power comes great responsibility” thing on its ear. Very postmodern of us to reject the urge to fight crime and save the world. Our savior will probably be one who is forced to take the job. I enjoyed it very much!

  2. This is my first taste of Daniel Hale’s work. Some of the links take you to anthologies with yucky covers but after a bit of rooting around I realized that all the “Writer’s Arena” selections were safe. I read 3 stories: Ragna-Roach; The Widower’s Djinn; The Man in the Maria. I have the feeling I should’ve liked Maria the best since I always fall for marginal peoples and lost civilizations, but it just didn’t do it for me. Ragna-Roach, however, with its faux-reportage, grabbed me right away, even though I’m not usually much for monster stories. But it’s actually The Widower’s Djinn that is sticking with me. Daniel Hale seems to be at his best when he’s on the side of the “monster.” I’m looking forward to “Library Beneath the Streets”. I just hope it won’t have a yucky cover.
