A couple of lines from my current WIP - With Ghost Butterflies in her Hair.
"Since the accident, the world as seen through her glasses appeared cockeyed. Aunt Jane said the world always looked that way to her and not to fuss..."
Which leads me into news of a delightful review of 'Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits' by Sheila M. Merritt over at Hellnotes.
Reading Cate Gardner’s short stories is like watching The Twilight Zone hosted by Franz Kafka, with adaptations by Lewis Carroll. This isn’t run of the mill writing. In the collection Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits and Other Curious Things, Gardner’s highly unusual fiction is displayed in all its bizarre glory. Calling her work odd is an understatement; it doesn’t do justice to her great imagination. Read the rest of the review here.
Kate Shaw also reviewed Strange Men over at Skunk Cat Book Reviews.
Once I did pick it up, though, I devoured it utterly. The stories are quick-paced, varied, and full of the mischievous and odd characters that people Gardner's writing and make it so unique.
Thanks so much Kate (and Sheila).
Okay back to the sarcophagus and its concealed secrets.
