On Missing Things: Review of E. Saxey’s Lost in the Archives for Ancillary Review of Books
This blog has been pretty empty this year — I've been very busy with a new job (and also reading more nonfiction than speculative fiction).
But! Ancillary Review gave me the opportunity to read E. Saxey's collection of dreamy, discomfiting short fiction. It's a fantastic selection of work. I especially loved “The Librarian’s Dilemma,” “Missing Episodes,” and “Raising the Sea Drowned,” but it's the rare collection where every short was worth the read, for me.
Check out my review on Ancillary's website.
