Review: “Counting Nuns”

gud-3I’m still waiting for the first wave of reviews for EMPTY ROOMS LONELY COUNTRIES to come in. Here is a review of my story “Counting Nuns”, published in Issue 3 of GUD Magazine, and available in ERLC:

A nonfiction piece, Christian A. Dumais’s ‘Counting Nuns’ is a study of phobia (in this case of needles) that contains a richness of language and imagery that many fictional stories lack. A perfect example of the editors taking a risk publishing an unusual piece that pays off.

If you are interested in reading “Counting Nuns”, you can purchase the issue of GUD Magazine or buy a copy of EMPTY ROOMS LONELY COUNTRIES.
