From Space and Time #132: “Stinky, Stinky Little Pig”

I just finished reading “Stinky, Stinky Little Pig” by David Sandner in issue # 132 of Space and Time magazine. What a great story! I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but this richly written little tale presents an author we all know and love in a different light… and life.

Sandner captures the mannerisms of a grumpy old writer at the end of his own story well, and the characters of the mother and her “stinky little pig” are believable. The story is well developed and the environment made real with all the detail Sandner blends in.

Thank you to David Sandner for an interesting read that made me think. I love what Anthony R. Rhodes did with the illustrations—he really nailed the facial expressions and body language of a bitter old man and an ornery boy. You can read “Stinky, Stinky Little Pig” by David Sandner in issue #132 of Space and Time, available here.

The next issue is due out on March 20.

  1. Thank you, Angela, for your warm and encouraging review. It was a wonder-filled pleasure illustrating David Sandner’s “Stinky, Stinky Little Pig.” I grew up mesmerized by illustrations in SF and fantasy mags. It’s no small gift that Space and Time Magazine continues to pair the talents of authors and artists and I’m grateful for having had the opportunity.
