Haiku Reviews


Another busy week and I’m trying to wrangle a new story of my own, so my thoughts on this week’s stories are in the form of Haikus.

Friday, May 11 – The Homecomming by Mike Resnick in Escape Pod

a boy is transformed
his father’s anger falls to
her memory and loss


Saturday, May 12 – Sibling Rivalry by Carine Engelbrecht in Everyday Fiction

unborn twins argue
Egypt’s last curse will greet
the firstborn this day


Sunday, May 13 – Steve Herbert by Robert Shearman in One Hundred Stories

a cold hearted doc
falls in love with the patient
and the thing inside


Monday, May 14 – A hole to China by Catherynne M. Valente in Lightspeed

a girl’s quest into
a story full of lovely 
creatures, burning hot!


Tuesday, May 15 – Star Maven by Sarah Crysl Akhtar in Flash Fiction Online (a mother’s day story)


mom’s in hyperspace
she’ll keep your ducks in a row
remotely, from home


Wednesday, May 16 – A Marble for the Drowning River by Ann Chatham in Beneath Ceaseless Skies

ghosts in the river  
The living and the dead each
have their own concerns


Thursday, May 17 -The Paper Menagerie by Ken Liu in EscapePod (among other places)

this touching story
just won the Nebula prize
and it’s worth a look.
