When Mr. Sanderson surprises you with happy tears, one must put the book on the kitchen floor, grab grandmother's iron wall art, & include their own toes, right?

Disasterology | Maggie Smith

This photo is from the literary magazine F(r)iction. I'm not sure if this specific poem is included in Disasterology. I got goosebumps the first & third times I read this poem, so far...

"They ate her," said Brother Number One. "With porridge. That's what 'ran away and was never seen again' means in these parts. It means 'eaten.' "
"Um, and what about 'happily ever after'?" asked David, a little uncertainly. "What does that mean?"
"Eaten quickly," said Brother Number One.
And with that they reached the dwarfs' house.

I'm adoring this adult fairytale. Visceral & beautiful, the mysteries enchant. The time traveling narrative is excellent. A shape shifting guardian & a demon death clock girl; funny, shocking, delightful...

The Drowned Life | Jeffrey Ford

Pickpick

Loved this so much, I was compelled to read the title story twice in one day. Ford says, "A book is a time machine of our intentions, our ideas, our emotions; the alchemy of ingredients psychological, physical, and experimental which have coalesced in the form of the words we choose."

Young adult ghost story with history. Consistent voice, compelling. Ghost cat, mythical creatures, mysterious powers on an old farmstead with a dilapidated manor.

52 pages in... Drawn out & dry with foreshadowing like a drum with the word drum on it being beaten by the reader's face every page...

Stress relieving myself by coloring others in stressful situations. The damsel isn't always in distress; sometimes she is the villain or holding her own... Or undead. Loving the interesting covers!

The nature in which rats exist calls to mind those lives that are not recalled and honored, whose careers are not reexamined in histories -- the lives that seem to be unnatural and even ratty or at least low-down but are not, actually... When we look at rats, we are thus compelled to look at the history of the lives in their midst, to search for the Unrepresented Men.

Jamiedemo The picture is of pet rats. This book is more about wild rats & people in New York. I like that it does not automatically demonize rats. Interesting & entertaining so far. 3y

I was just blown away by the story, "This is Love;" wow! Goosebumps & actual tears from a horror story. "Welcome to the Reptile House" was an excellent tale of a certain type of monster(no spoilers). So far the best part of this collection is the surprising freshness. Loving it!

I made it 70 pages. Perhaps, I could read this at some other point in my life... Or not. Slow moving plot combined with complaining narrator incessantly asking why her friendship disappeared. Sorry, we can't be friends either...

There are intrinsic benefits to constantly probing the possibility that our assumptions about the future might be wrong: humility and wonder.

IndyHannaJones I had a dream last night that I was desperately searching for that book. I kept finding books that looked like it or had similar titles but it was never the right one and I was very upset. I guess I should just order it online, eh? 3y

Just awful. I like deadpan, but this was tedious & boring beyond belief; way too many details about building fences. I threw it violently on the floor after reading 90 pages, & I have been kicking it & verbally abusing it all day.
