In “Be Thee Like Children” – the most thought-provoking offering in the issue – Minier takes a hard look at society’s obsession with the pureness and innocence of babies and our equation of youth with purity.  The unexpected ending lobs an extra level of surrealism onto this grim tale.              

Suzanne Church, Tangent Short Fiction Review –

When-the-Veil-Drops-final-b-fronta2“[S]imply masterful. Each time the reader thinks he knows what’s happening, Minier spins his plot elegantly sideways, leading us somewhere new but equally compelling … ‘The Third List’ is wonderfully descriptive and effectively gruesome and eerie to boot, making it a pitch-perfect dark holiday fable.
