My review of Vertical, by Rex Pickett, happened in stages. It’s a very different way to write a review, I have to admit. And it also makes a bit of sense to me, as Rex Pickett is a very non-traditional kinda guy.

Once I published my review, Rex Pickett reached out to me. The version that I had read was not his original.

I’ll be reading this version, with the purple cover, and report on this one, only, as soon as it’s read.

I apologize for taking down my review. As a writer, I have deep empathy for our processes.

Thanks for your patience.
