Praise for “Maker of Flight”

From the editor of ChiZine Publications, Brett Alexander Savory, via their Facebook update:

ENTER THE WORLD OF FILARIA CONTEST RESULTS
The winning entries for the Enter the World of Filaria Contest
have been posted at the site. Richard Thomas’s “Maker of Flight”,
a disquieting tale of what might be happening behind a closed door on the top level of the structure, won first place.

Brent also had some nice things to say to me about it:

“That was a really nice piece you wrote, and in my head now it’s somehow forever tangled up in Filaria.”

I thought that was the ultimate compliment

Well, the story is now live. Hope you dig it, I really had fun with it. I’ve had some fantastic conversations with the author Brent Hayward, saying that this story will now be a part of the world he created, which is really just the nicest thing I could hear about this short. Brett Alexander Savory at ChiZine has also been very supportive and great to work with.
