Perhaps “Errata” is a metafictional narrative about a short story assigned to Jeff VanderMeer (or a fictional version of Jeff VanderMeer) by a now-defunct literary journal (or a fictional version of a now-defunct literary journal) explicitly for the purposes of determining THE FATE OF THE WORLD.

Ruby  Tombstone [Uncensored or Else]
If I were to commission a short story just for myself, based on all my favourite things, this would be the result. It's like a short version of The Illuminatus! Trilogy: The Eye in the Pyramid/The Golden Apple/Leviathan - metafiction, conspiracies, laugh-out-loud humour, a high creepy factor and enough factual (or factual-sounding) information to make the story temptingly believable - and a penguin. A motherfucking penguin!

New. Favourite. Story.
This Is Not The Michael You're Looking For
Essentially an exercise in strangeness. More weird than humorous, it's entire concept is essentially a conceit in "meta". It starts off seemingly random and comes together into something which at least shows a certain coherent structure, if no particular sense or logic. Liked the penguin, who seemed the most centered character in the story.
