Frogs, Gnomes, Hikers and Bottle Miners by Patricia Crandall

Received a great review from a reader on my story "Frogs, Gnomes, Hikers and Bottle Miners" on FICTION on the WEB 

Here's the review by Brooke Fieldhouse


Gingerbread houses, cathedral-like ceilings, bulbous polyps, baguette-snitching seasoned woodsmen, rain-vulnerable gnomes, ruby-colored antique bottles, upholstered gliders, and maroon and grey outbacks; this story has a delightful air of magic realism about it. The parallel narratives fascinate, and intertwine just at the right moment. For me the heroes were the enchanted landscape which is there if only we can see it, the value of a liberating education, and those who so lovingly administer it!


Read the story and give me your comments. I would appreciate them. You can find this and my other short stories in my book, Pat's Collectibles
