The Disturbing, Almost Twisted, and Very Well Executed Birthday Present

Spread the love

Both this year and last year (is this the beginning of a tradition?) Stephanie Zvan gave me a short story for my birthday. Last year, the story impressed me because it was a good story even without the unexpected, mildly disturbing twist. This time, the twist is not mildly disturbing at all.

It is deeply disturbing. Here is the story.

Stephanie will be reading from her work at the Convergence Convention coming up in a few days. Personally, I think this is a candidate for a reading like this, though it would be appropriate to have two readers acting it out. It could be seen as all dialog and stage direction. The problem is, where do we find an eleven inch high person?

Anyway, go read it.

Thanks for the story, Stephanie! I think…..

Have you read the breakthrough novel of the year? When you are done with that, try:

In Search of Sungudogo by Greg Laden, now in Kindle or Paperback
