Reviews of “The First Time We Met”

Lois Tilton at The Internet Review of Science Fiction”

This is a story about a relationship. The fantasy element is secondary, although it is at the center of the relationship; still, the story would not have been all too different if the element were non-fantastic. The question “What will our relationship be without your power” is much the same as “What will our relationship be now that you are sick/old/poor.” It is a complex thing, a relationship between two people who love each other, and this is what the author shows us.

While the story was a little scattered for my tastes, it was still a good read, which is always a great thing to say about an author’s first professional publication.
