WELCOME TO DECEMBER PROJECT!

last year, i carved out my own short story advent calendar as my project for december, and it was so much fun i decided to do it again this year! so, each day during the month of december, i will be reading a short story and doing the barest minimum of a review because ain't no one got time for that and i'm already so far behind in all the things. however, i will be posting story links in case anyone wants to read the stories themselves and show off how maybe someone could have time for that.

here is a link to the first story in last year's project,

https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

which in turn links to the whole monthlong project, in case you wanna do some free short story reading of your own! links to the stories in this year's advent-ure will be at the end of each review.

enjoy, and the happiest of decembers to you all!

DECEMBER 1



Stews are stews. Who knows what's in them?

robert coover is robert coover - who knows what's in hims mind? i liked it, and i have liked almost all the coover i've read, but this is a weird-ass little story. funweird, for sure, and full of great imagery, but robert coover doesn't care what raymond carver thinks - he's gonna write a short story the way he wants to write a short story.

message 5: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn That was unsettling... but I would have read a lot more of it all the same. Reminds me of Ray Bradbury’s short stories.


karen you're right - that one definitely does! coover is all over the place in style, but this one does have the bradbury vibe.
