Kind words for Dave Reidy
“Sometimes, stories seem unsure, asking you to like them or be impressed, panting for approval, but ‘The Regular’ doesn’t bother, it’s kind of cool that way, so that in the end I came away admiring the writer’s artistic courage and feeling a little braver about things myself.” — Charles D’Ambrosio, judge of the inaugural Emerging Writers Network Short Fiction Contest, on Dave Reidy’s “The Regular”
