As of today, Monkeybicycle is hosting an audio recording of me reading “Shapeway” on their site. Listen to it here, and then don’t forget to pick up Issue 9 for your own copy of the story as well as all the other great stories and poems.
Joe Sullivan has reviewed Monkeybicycle 9 on his blog, and he has this to say about my story “Shapeway”:
“I have not read a story I’ve loved as much as I love Colleen Morrissey’s ‘Shapeway’ from Monkeybicycle 9. I’ve read it several times. I’ve taken it to bed with me. I’ve smiled at it again and again and again. It’s so perfect, I can hardly talk about it… If you read nothing else in this issue, read this. If you need one reason to buy this issue, this is it: ‘Shapeway.'”
Thank you, Joe. I appreciate it very deeply.
Please read the rest of the review at his blog.
