Vue Weekly, a weekly entertainment newspaper for Edmonton, recently reviewed Women of the Apocalypse. Sue Karp, the reviewer, had this to say about my novella: The real stand out in the collection is “Deus ex Machina” by McFadden in part due to the introduction of another narrative thread of semi-poetical nature that intrigued, foreshadowed and enriched the story.
As a whole, her are some of the finer snippets:
“The freshness and playfulness of the theme is infectious.”
“…though the stories do get progressively darker, the transition feels natural and not jarring…”
“… there is a refreshing lack of black and white dogma…”
“… another narrative thread of semi-poetical nature that intrigued, foreshadowed and enriched the story.”
“It’s a wondrously creative concept and the individuality of each champion of humanity is emphasized by the disparateness existing between the writing styles of each story’s author. Each story is a unique experience wholly self-sustained and entertaining.”
