Today I read Weird Dinner by L. L. Heberlein. Two people share a meal of what is clearly their last remaining bits of food, scrounged from somewhere.
Today I read Palomino by Olivier De Beventine. I love everything about this story but I don’t want to say too much as I don’t want to ruin the many suprises!
“The aqua-birds’ thirst induces hallucinations of extraordinarily beautiful and ornate birdbaths.”
This is listed as a poem but I think it can be considered a short story too. I love it whatever it is.
Today I read The Eunuchs by Marcel Schwob. Schwob was clearly a lover of words. Obviously, all authors love words, but some love them in the way that a glutton loves fine food.
Today I read Thomas Ligotti’s The Night School.
