#ReadShortStories in unplanned bursts (161 to 165)


A small detour from the Simon Petrie collection I've been reading to a couple of stories published together in Glittership, and both featuring nonbinary characters. I especially enjoyed the JY Yang, though it wasn't exactly cheerful. Then it was back to the Petrie collection, which I have almost finished.


Curiosity Fruit Machine by S. Qiouyi Lu — An amusing very short story about two people in the future finding a certain present-day artefact. (Also of note is that both characters used different non-standard pronouns.) Source: http://www.glittership.com/2017/02/16/episode-33-fiction-by-s-qiouyi-lu-and-jy-yang/

The Slow Ones by JY Yang — A powerful story about the end of the world and finding comfort where you can. I found the background science a bit shaky, but it was also speculation on the part of the characters. Otherwise an excellent read.
