(Background Pony can be read here)
[Now, a story review by Inquisitor M! You may recognize him from his regular comments on this blog. I'd say more, but 1. He doesn't have any published stories (yet) which I can link you to, and 2. He wrote his own bit to go above the page break. So without further adieu, I cede the stage to him. -Chris]
By Order of the Inquisition:
A Chapter 1 Review of Background Pony
Well the Chris is away, so I get to post stuff to his blog. I had a few ideas, but with the number of short stories that have come up lately, one thing stuck out that I wanted to talk about: the beginning. Rather than have me wax lyrical about what I think makes a good opening to a story, I would like to do a review of the first chapter of Background Pony, by short skirts and explosions, and see if my comments can spark some discussion.
