Bronies: For the Love of Ponies Reviews
We tweeted earlier in the week about some positive press our Bronies: For the Love of Ponies anthology has been getting. Here’s one:
And here’s another:
You know, in case you’re not following our every word.
If you did miss them, we wanted to highlight a few snippets from these reviews. [Follow the links for the full reviews.]
From Chris, over at One Man’s Pony Ramblings:
Top to bottom, this is one of the most solid anthologies I’ve ever seen.
This was a much better collection, with far fewer weak spots, than I expected. In terms of overall content quality, Bronies is beyond reproach.
And a little praise for our editor, too:
Editor L. Lambert Lawson deserves credit for ensuring that all of the pieces which make up Bronies are high-level, commercial-grade fiction. It seems a small thing to ask, but I’ve seen enough collections fail on that count to recognize that it is indeed a significant accomplishment.
From Phoe over at Equestria Daily:
Bronies: For the Love of Ponies is brimming with potential, and certain to excite, enlighten, and frustrate in equal parts.
The authors of Bronies: For the Love of Ponies depicts an image of the fandom that is as complete as any I’ve ever seen.
We couldn’t be more thrilled by these honest, positive looks at our anthology. We’re a small press, and we’re a new press, so getting word out about our products is vital and challenging. There’s a lot of noise in the publishing world because the market’s diversified so much, but we’re pleased to have cut through the static on at least a few channels. Now, we’re hard at work breaking into a few other channels. Learning as we go and all that.
As well, we’re excited that folks deeply entrenched in the bronies community enjoyed our collection. Our original theme was broad–give us an entertaining SFF story that has someone expressing love for a pony. Our authors didn’t disappoint in their stories, and we’re over the moon that others agree. (Plus, Chris worked in a RENT reference to the review, which we loved–even if it wasn’t quite a praising reference.)
