I complain a lot on my blog. I aim for productive and positive catharsis, but it still amounts to bitching. To balance that, I will add art and writing that really floored me to this page. Hopefully you’ll love these things too.
- Deep Music by Ely Bangs, Clarkesworld
- Why I loved it: the premise (blobby pets made of water), clever worldbuilding details, grumpy-but-loveable protagonist, effective use of call-backs, happy ending, hilarious music references
- A Letter to My Therapist, to Whom I’m No Longer Speaking by Lindy Biller, Smokelong Quarterly
- Why I loved it: the title, haunting atmosphere, fantastic use of cicadas
