Stranger Things Happen

by Kelly Link

After reading some of the scathing reviews here: I just had to check it out.
I was quite innocently looking for a short story collection. And honestly, I thought that nothing could be as horrible as some of the critics here allege..
But I was wrong..
This is the worst sort of self indulgent crap that I've ever attempted to lay my eyes on.
It's a lot of pointless meandering that actually claims to have some kind of meaning.
This actually reminds me of some notes someone has made on short stories yet to be written ...just the notes, the outlines..and then thrown together into a non intelligible brew of nonsense.
Or better yet...a lot of scribbles while under the influence of some highly toxic hallucination.
Awards?
Is this some kind of joke..?
Well, at least it gives all true writers some hope...that some will actually attach any meaning to this batch of scribbles.
Don't bother with this...or better yet...
wake up each morning and write down the dreams that you remember each night.
After you have enough to fill so many pages ...just call them a series of short stories. Attempt to publish.
You'll have much of the same.
