Tangent Online review of "The Blue Testament"

Another review of my Jesus/Jaguar/jaws-of-life story in Triangulation: Morning After. This one at Tangent Online by reviewer Chuck Rothman.

"The Blue Testament" by Marshall Payne is a very different look at Jesus and his apostles, set in a modern day world where they are a pack of showmen. Jesus has died in a car crash, and the others wonder if he'll manage to make it back again this time. It's flash fiction, carried off with a lot of brio and fun, and the concept is an amusing one.

And a one-line review on by Trent Walters: "Marshall Payne -- stylish rendering of Jesus as a modern stage-show performer." Trent also recently reviewed the antho on SF Site.

Always nice to see what readers think of one of my fave flash pieces.
