American Short Fiction, which chose “The Harbinger” for its Best of the Web feature, wrote:
“Kan’s story is a devastating exploration of honor, love, and the desperation of a family during a time of war. It’s told lyrically, in dreamlike sentences that pull you in from the first line. There are stories we like, stories we love, and stories that change us. . . . You’ll feel different after [reading “The Harbinger”]. Something in your heart or consciousness or stomach will, like it or not, change.”
High praise. Read the story here.
