"'Sanctus Spiritus, 1512' by Sarah Arantza Amador. The editor clearly chose the best story to kick off the anthology. It contains a bit of mystery, a bit of fantasy, and a healthy dose of 'longing, ghost-making, the endearment of monsters' as the author mentions in her bio." - Katherine Valdez, "BEST MICROFICTION 2019 Dazzles with Wide Array of Brilliant Stories"
"Holy hell, this is vivid. Read this paragraph out loud and tell me this doesn’t taste good on your tongue. The whole damn piece is this good. The momentum doesn’t stop. This whole story builds upon a single moment (i.e. the three attempts) and it grows and grows... It is hugely successful in playing with so many devices in a limited space." - Lyndsie Manusos, Book Riot
