Aurealis Magazine’s Aimée Lindorff provided a wonderful, insightful review of J.S. Breukelaar’s debut story collection COLLISION: STORIES, in the May issue. We hope you’ll pick up a copy for the full review along with amazing stories and content.
Breukelaar’s characters and characterisations uncover depth and complexities often lacking in shorter fiction. It’s a refreshing take on familiar tropes with unlikeable protagonists and complex relationships incorporating multiple queer characters. Her monsters defy genre-standard mythologies to toy with expectation, and her humour and dry wit expose a fondness for the form and lighten darker themes . . . There’s an ethereal and dreamlike quality to Breukelaar’s prose that demands attention and reflection that keep the reader enthralled beyond the last page.Aimée Lindorff, AUREALIS MAGAZINE, Issue #120
