Reading Experience


I'll weigh in with some practical examples from the latest Zoetrope issue via an examination of plot... if I ever get these taxes done. (I need to read it more closely but the Dale Peck snark on Birkerts may have some valid points on this issue as well.)


Carol Emshwiller has a sharp-edged story at Scifiction, "On Display Among the Lesser," a tale of a powerfully elegant, if once arrogant in its violence, great bird who learns to cope with the slings and arrows, a great bird who learns it's not nearly as injured as it thought it was. Well worth reading.
