Jackie Loggins reviews “Fallen Towers”

I met Jackie Loggins in the chat room of the Black Science Fiction Society. After conversing a bit, she expressed interest in reviewing one of my short stories. She picked, “Children in the City of the Fallen Towers,” and the rest is history…

Excerpt from Review:

“First, I would like to thank author Joey Pinkney for working with me to put together this book review. He was so gracious in allowing me to pick a title from his catalog. Once I reached his  author page, I immediately knew which book I wanted to review for this segment.

When it comes to the events and tragedies of 9/11, we often hear about the fallen heroes, widowed spouses and most of all the terrorists who were involved. But rarely have I personally seen news segments or articles or books of personal stories about the orphans in which the events of 9/11 created.

And reading this short story brought up a lot questions in my mind as to why this is so. Aren’t the children of lost parents voices just as important as a widow(er) or the family of one of the terrorists? In our society, to be parent-less puts you in a very vulnerable and often dangerous situation.”
