This is a continuation of a week-long review series featuring Kindle short stories from authors from reddit’s /r/selfpublish. Check back throughout the week for more reviews.
While my call for short stories to review was for genres I typically read—scifi, speculative fiction, fantasy, horror—Adam Bertocci took me at my word that I occasionally read other things, and offered me this piece of literary fiction. And, boy, am I glad he did.
If you have ever taken part in a wedding—whether as the bride or groom, or one of the other essential wedding party members—you know that planning a wedding can be a tense, awkward, nervous affair. Adam Bertocci’s “Second Thoughts About the Fourth Dimension” captures this feeling almost perfectly as it follows bride and groom, Harper and Sean, as they discuss their upcoming wedding.
