a streetcar named bizarre

Feeling Very Strange: The Slipstream Anthology 2006 (288 pgs/read 240)

Slipstream, I never knew I loved ya. This brand of magical realism (or perhaps realistic magicialism) is just my style. Ranging from “realism with a side of weird” to “metafiction with a dash of odd” every story was uniquely enjoyable. There were great ones from Kelly Link, Aimee Bender, Carol Emshwiller, George Saunders, Jeff VanderMeer, Michael Chabon, Theodora Goss, … okay I feel like I’m just recreating the content page- but I loved nearly every story in the book (unusual for me with an anthology). My favorite was an exceptional “angelic visitations cause random catastrophes and miracles in every day life” story from Ted Chiang.
