And I need your help naming it. For your ten seconds of time, I offer you a $20 gift card from Target if I use your suggestion.

I’ve been following from an excited distance the opinions folks have rendered on “Paston, Kentucky”, ever since it first appeared in Murky Depths #1. I’m not used to accolades, but I can’t help but find gems like this enjoyable:
In “Paston, Kentucky”, Jonathan C. Gillespie gives us an exciting adventure about three men who are mankind’s last hope against an army of artificially-created drones who attack and eat anything metal.
I’ve always been grateful for any honest feedback, negative or otherwise. Thanks to everyone who’s taken the time to review this publication’s first issue, and double thanks to those who spent words on my modest effort.
On an unrelated note, Halloween is coming up, and I feel like celebrating in true writer fashion. You won’t see shots of me in a costume on this site, but if you come back on All Hallow’s Eve, you might find a literary treat waiting for you on this blog.

Phil Soletsky had this to say about my tale in issue one of Murky Depths:
â€œPaston, Kentuckyâ€ by Jonathan C. Gillespie posits a postapocalyptic world decimated by metal-gathering robots run amok. Iâ€™m skeptical that a lack of metal would, in fact, lead to the complete downfall of our society (weâ€™d probably replace many things with conductive carbon composites), but given that Iâ€™m willing to suspend that little piece of disbelief, I found this one of the most enjoyable and fast-paced stories of the issue.
Check out Mr. Soletsky’s thoughts on the rest of the issue here.
