Oh yes please! Let's be a little weird in parts, go off the beaten track and explore the hidden places and wonder at the mysteries of life. We'll be safe in the knowledge that it's only fantasy, and we can retreat back to the real world anytime we choose.
– a reader reading completes the story's circle, and their interpretation is unique to them. For that reason, I've never commented on a review, apart from to say "Thank you kindly". (I hope my quoted reader doesn't mind being the exception to this rule.) Once the story's out there, my work is done, but a reader's work is never finished. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm way behind on my own reviewing, and I've read so many stonking good books lately!
*stonking: ace; awesome; brilliant; marvellous.
