My Friend Fishfinger, by Daisy, Age 7 reviewed

I found the following review of My Friend Fishfinger, which appeared in last month's issue of Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine. It's not the first I've seen, but it's the first by someone who appears to have actually read the story (and to have got the Lovecraft references):

Tallerman creates a new take on the Dagon mythos of a family searching for new sacrifices told through the eyes of the victim, a seven year old girl. A flash fiction piece, its strength comes from the underlying darkness and the innocence of the na├»ve protagonist. Sure we know what’s coming, but that’s half the fun.

Thanks to Mark Smith-Briggs of Horrorscope for the kind words - follow the link for the complete article, including some extremely positive comments about issue #30 as a whole.
