First, a note about The Infinite Matrix. They are accepting donations. This is a very professional magazine with wonderful writers, and I hope they do well enough to keep publishing for a long time. See http://www.infinitematrix.com.
"On the Cliff by the River"
by Benjamin Rosenbaum
Originally posted on 09/16/02.
This is the story of a hunt observed. Benjamin Rosenbaum uses immediate descriptive prose and a crisp narrative style. It is a storyteller's story - we hear the tale as it is told to someone else. The rich style makes "On the Cliff by the River" a pleasure to read, although ultimately it is hard to really get a point to the story, and who or what the narrator is remains a mystery. I wanted to know a lot more than I was shown. I liked what I did see, but I really wasn't fully satisfied.
