The Green Mouse

by Robert W. Chambers

A penniless, depressed kid invents a mechanism that, when activated, sets the victim/lucky dog upon an ineluctable, unavoidable path towards his or her soul mate. This is the short-’n'-sweet story of that kid meeting and marrying his soul mate; her three sisters meeting their own; and a random investor in the mechanism meeting his. Eventually the whole world is using it (or terrified of it). Except gay people, I guess.

I downloaded this bc it was classified as sci-fi. It is not sci-fi. It is not even science-y. And it is not politically correct. But it is cute and funny. If you’re a sucker for love, go ahead and read it.

The Call of Cthulhu

by H. P. Lovecraft

Horror story about, like, an evil blob. I wasn’t wild about the blob, but I loved the way the story was told. Our first-person narrator discovers his dead uncle’s notes on a strange occurrence and pieces together a really nifty little story, a potential world-ender.

Craphound

by Cory Doctorow

This is a fantastic comic-booky little yarn that opens with a laugh and doesn’t disappoint throughout. The language is tasty and visceral, and the relationships are upsettingly familiar. Yep, read it.

Seven Swords

by Michael E. Shea

This is one duuumb, rusty clunker of a story, just jouncing along over unbearably vast plot-holes. And then Author tries to shock-and-awe you out of noticing the story’s gaping flaws. Author pulls the gore card every time, but he’s just no good at it. My verdict: a waste of time and effort and synaptic motion. Yet, to be fair, I did check if there was a sequel...
