Another great review of “This Wish Tonight” and “Wonderland”, my own story in the antho:
Wonderland by J. Scott Coatsworth – 4.5 stars
Zeke is a loner his late forties, living in a small cabin in rural Montana. Nathan has been traveling across country on foot since the zombie apocalypse, dealing with his OCD in an empty world.
Zeke just wants someone to love. Nathan just wants to be home again.
Fate brings them together in a winter wonderland, but their own fears and baggage may tear them apart.
Is there still hope for love at Christmas, at the end of the world?
Coatsworth came up with an altogether different sort of apocalypse in Wonderland. Still meant the end of civilization and most of humankind. Zeke is thinking he’s the last one left until Nathan shows up. What follows is tender, real, and loving. Its a beautiful story of hope, recovery and weirdly enough romance. Coatsworth has taken a familiar theme and made it his with these wonderful characters and an ending that leaves you smiling and full of wonder. Yes, I loved it.
Thanks so much, Melanie!
