it was amazing
bookshelves: short-stories, australian-author, spec-fic

I've read a couple of Peter Carey's novels, and I had no idea that he wrote speculative short fiction. I mean, there are fantastical elements in his novels, but several of the short stories in this collection are straight sci-fi. And they are fantastic stories - for the most part, very dark and bleak, and really stunning writing. My particular favourite was "Exotic Pleasures", in which a young couple discover a particularly beautiful and pleasure-inducing bird.
