A mixed review

A short fiction ezine called The Fixx (based in the U.K. I believe) also has reviewed the April issue of Baen's. This is what Aliette de Bodard had to say:

"In “The Witch of Waxahachie” by Lou Antonelli, the narrator is a journalist in the titular town who takes part in an illegal experiment involving string theory—and finds himself yanked into an alternate dimension where the Industrial Revolution has been replaced by the Magical Revolution.

"I enjoyed the details of the alternate history world and the sense of dislocation the characters felt throughout. Overall, though, the general levity made it hard to be drawn in, and my interest started to falter well before the end.
