I won this book in a first-reads giveaway.

This is an anthology of fake texts that take the form of letters, contracts, glossaries, police blotters, etc. Generally, you could call these texts short stories, with the authors playing around with various formats or mediums in which to tell the story. Most of the stories are funny and enjoyable; if you liked Reality Hunger: A Manifesto you'll probably like Fakes.
