Send My Love and a Molotov Cocktail!: A Review

by John Koeing

Great book title, one that will help this book be placed cover facing out on bookstore shelves for a week or so. Hopefully exposure will pump up sales and garner some publicity, as this collection of short stories has extreme personality and a bunch of worthwhile writing. If there’s a theme holding these authors together, it’s riots, love, crime, revolution and chaos.

Some pretty heavy hitters are included in this collection: Michael Moorcock, Sara Paretsky, Cory Doctorow, and many others. Send My Love and a Molotov Cocktail reminds me of an era gone by, writers from a different time, and attitudes not often seen today. This isn’t pulp fiction; these are splendid wordsmiths.
