Noted H. P. Lovecraft scholar S. T. Joshi has written a review of Machinations and Mesmerism: Tales Inspired by E. T. A. Hoffman in issue number 26 of Dead Reckonings, a horror review magazine.
He only spends one sentence on my story, “Spinollio”, but as there are over a dozen stories in this anthology, it makes sense that he wouldn’t be able to go into depth on all of them. I’m actually flattered that he mentioned me at all.
He describes my story as “mildly interesting”, which I think counts as praise coming from him. What do you think? Should I put this quote on the cover of my next book? “S.T. Joshi raves that D.J. Moore is mildly interesting!” Hehe. Just kidding. Maybe.
