The Hike

Magary, Drew
As user Lala BooksandLala on GoodReads wrote "This was quite possibly the weirdest shit I've ever read." She only gave it two stars. I gave it four. I enjoyed reading and the surprise ending.

Quote:

"You're not just a crab, are you?"
"Very perceptive. The fact that I can fucking talk maybe clued you in."

After Alice

Maguire, Gregory
Friend Ada goes down the rabbit hole after Alice. Hard to read, but interesting anyway. Spent a LOT of time looking up words!

Confessions of an ugly stepsister

Maguire, Gregory
Retake on the Cinderella tale. Surprise twist at end, at least I was surprised. A slow-moving story, but interesting.

Read:

Lost

Maguire, Gregory
Confusing story of Winifred Rudge who stops off in London at her cousin's place, run into...ghosts, maybe? It is all cleared up, finally, in a pretty good story. But it was a rough go, for me, for quite a while.

Quote::

...to claim any truck with ghosts. -- pg. 245 - I thought I was the only person who used that word!

What The Dickens

Maguire, Gregory
An orphan tooth fairy finds his way the world, while three children and their cousin wait out a MOBY storm for news of their parents.

Is it a sign of a good book when you want to read more? Or is it better to have a satisfying conclusion?

Read:

Maguire, Gregory
Interesting take on Oz. Sexual situations.

Read:

The Best Time Travel Stories Of All Time

Malzberg, Barry N.
Fourteen stories selected by Barry Malzberg. Some really good stuff here, except I really didn't care for the Philip K. Dick story.

Sea Of Tranquility

Mandel, Emily St. John
Time travel, epidemic, life on the moon. Good story, I enjoyed it. Don't know about the paradox, though.

Quote:

"So we don't own the building," the director said, "but we hold a ten-thousand-year lease on the space." ... "...But there's more." She leaned forward, paused for effect. "The lease is renewable."

Quote:

"... It's always bad chickens."

Mankell, Henning
Five stories of the Swedish policeman Kurt Wallander. Pretty good stuff!

Read:

The Shadow Girls

Mankell, Henning
A Swedish poet is unwillingly coerced into hearing the stories of three illegal immigrants. While the stories are quite tragic, there is some humor in his tribulations.

Read:

Mystery! A treasury for younger readers

Manley, Seon, ed.
A number of stories and poems of mystery and wierdness (fairies?) by classic authors like Poe, F. Scott Fitgerald, Thurber and Holmes, for example. I kinda skipped the poetry... Favorite story was The Murder Of George Washington, by Richard M Gordon.

Read:
