“A well maneuvered, delectable lexicon”
“Daniel’s explorative, profound stories delved incredibly deeply into the human conscience, and the divides which relentlessly exist between different generations and groups of people within society.”
“Daniel Carpenter’s short story is an emotionally-charged slice of post-technology sadness, similar to Delphine Boswell’s earlier short, but with a great sense of loss for a loved one supporting the story’s backbone. Written with a subtleness that does the story proud, Carpenter has penned a quiet and purposefully unambitious tale that touches the reader rather the pounces upon them. For me it worked. It showed that strong human element in complete juxtaposition to the technology that has been such a predominant part of the entire anthology. And at the end of the story I smiled.” DLS Reviews
