Song Stuck on the Brain: Still singing If You're Going Through Hell by Rodney Atkins

The Sword Review

The Sword Review is both a website featuring the best in Speculative fiction and poetry and a magazine. The content is wide ranging. One of my favorite stories on the site is Polar Daughter by Sharon Irwin, a Fantasy piece about a little Inuit girl with a special gift and the polar bear that saves her. The underlying spiritual themes are potent, but not overpowering. Just enough to make you think without losing the mystical 'otherworld' feel that should be prevalent in a fantasy story.

In addition to a large selection of poetry and short stories in the Science Fiction and Fantasy realm, they also host a community discussion board, multiple blogs and regular columns. You can also purchase Sword Review merchandise in their store. If you enjoy SciFi and Fantasy, it's a great place to stop and get your fix.

Good post, April. I'm going to do a review of one of the stories tomorrow and was considering the one you highlighted. I'm glad I read your blog first. No point in doing what you've already done. ;-)

Becky should definitely read Polar Daughter. Thanks for the recommendation, April. I skipped some of the longer stories... because I'm lazy I guess.

The polar bear just grabbed me within a few paragraphs. He's quite a character. Somewhat reminded me of the bears in His Dark Elements.

I never read that one. I'll have to take a look.

I read the story about ME, mind control. Science Fiction. It was good and it was quick (which was what I was after).

I'll check it out.
