Marc Johnson follows up his atmoshperic 2010 novel "Becoming" with a short story.

"Uncanny Valley" is just as French-polished as his novel (and of the same rich flavor). Perhaps not for minors, "Uncanny Valley" builds up the story of Admiel from typically fond but vague memories of the sweet sights and smells of any other normal childhood to shocking developments and revelations in his life, which eventually reveal Admiel to be someone hugely different than we expect. A quality story from Johnson
