Ishtar reviewed

The lovely Alan Baxter, from Thirteen O’Clock has reviewed Ishtar!

A snippet:

“This collection is a bold and clever book, with three writers taking very old stories and breathing new life into them. The Ishtar mythology on which the stories are based is renewed by the words of these three…the book as a whole is well worth your time.”

Full review is here.
