Editorial Reviews



"(My Mother's Shadow is) a truly beautiful piece of short fiction.  What it lacks in action it makes up for in literary depth.  There are a lot of layers to this story, each interesting enough to mull over for some time.

I was impressed with how easily M. Eigh introduces his racist world.  In just a few short paragraphs that contain no blatant description you understand the conflict and empathize with the characters.  I appreciated the symbolic use of shadows.  It was a clever literary reference to other literary references.

★★★★ --Alain Gomez, Book Brouhaha

In MY MOTHER'S SHADOW our main character is a first grade child who notices she has no shadow, discovers that this is a curse from God ...


"My Mother's Shadow" was quite original, a story about the consequences of being born without a shadow. It was eerily reminiscent of Germany's treatment of the Jews in the 1930s.

★★★★ --  J. Chambers, TOP 50 REVIEWER

One of the the most interesting stories that took place in the US was about a young girl who didn't have a shadow...

★★★★★ --Carolynde1515

As writer I have always admired those that can contain their creativity within the limited confines of short fiction and still create vivid and poignant stories. Here is one example of a master of the short form.

★★★★★ -- Ghauger
