Review of "Problems of the Solid State" in The Fix

Farrago's Wainscot # 9 has received a thorough and enjoyable review by Rochita Loenen-Ruiz over at The Fix.

Here's what she said about my story:

" “Problems of the Solid State” by Alvaro Zinos-Amaro is a lovely read. Again, our narrator is unnamed, and he finds himself all alone on the day after he has found the woman he loves. Not only is she gone, but as the story unfolds, we discover that she has left not only him, but Earth as well.

Zinos-Amaro taps into the stream of consciousness and rides it like a wave for the purpose of creating a narrative about loss that is so effortlessly written, it reads as light as air. A fitting end to an issue that started out on a somber note."
