Late Tackle On Blind Swimmer…

Posted: January 5, 2012 by douglasthompson in Reviews

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water again, Eibonvale’s groundbreaking anthology Blind Swimmer has been reviewed by David Woodruff over at The Short Review. Working to the theme of “Creativity In Isolation”, Blind Swimmer was designed as a showcase for the varied talents of the diverse stable of writers associated with the press. Everyone tackled the theme in different ways, and in a sense it was a group project rather than an edited anthology in the traditional way. Surely no book has ever produced such a widely differing range of reactions. Every story has been both lauded and reviled by one reviewer or another over the last 15 months. David Woodruff discusses a few of the stories in detail and concludes by saying:

“Blind Swimmer is an intriguing and thought-provoking collection, filled with stories which often sit on the edge of genre classifications, sometimes defying our expectations, sometimes challenging them.”
