really liked it
bookshelves: science-fiction, queer
Recommended for: people who wish they had magic powers
Read in June, 2007

I loved these stories. Only flaw is that they're nearly all written on an identical theme - misfit children that escape from their misunderstood existences in magical or magical-realism-esque ways. That doesn't stop them from being awesome. My favorite was the story of God as a little boy and his grandma creating creatures together, with God really getting into the bugs.
