I am thrilled and honored to have my piece “No Place for Unicorns or Teddy Bears” selected by San Francisco editor Meg Pokrass for inclusion in the inaugaral online edition of “The Editor’s Eye”. Here’s the review Meg wrote about the piece. Thank you Meg. I am thrilled and honored to be included!
“Michael Gillian Maxwell’s story offer a straightforward narrative voice, employing smart visual details. Here we are catching a bittersweet glimpse of compensatory, brotherly work relationships, and how sexual fantasy takes over when conditions are this lousy, when the stakes are absurdly high. He shows us a war of dangerous work and the Carpenter Ant-like lives of humans so replaceable.”

Here here Mike Maxwell! Your scene, for some reason, reminds me more of the Pfister-Vogel tannery on Water St., than of the nearby brewery’s. Well done!

Haha! Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment. It’s surprising how many people have responded with horror stories of their own! I think we all did at least one stint in a Little Shop of Horrors!
