Lately I have been reading more and more short stories. I didn’t have a problem with them in the past, I would just always choose a novel over several shorter tales. Neil Gaiman’s Trigger Warning really got me in the mood so I decided to read this one from my TBR shelf. I’m glad I finally read it because it’s my favorite so far; I enjoyed the unique stories so much. Loory gives human qualities to unthinkable things like a house and an ocean in “The House on the Cliff and the Sea.” “The Octopus is a cute story about an octopus named Harley who, once living on land, can live forever. Another, “UFO: A Love Story,” is, you guessed it, an alien love story. It has a really neat twist to it and most of the other stories.
I was really surprised to find that the author only has this book and a children’s book published. It was also a disappointing discovery because I’d love to read more stories like the ones found in Stories for Nighttime and Some for the Day.
