Some really inventive and unusual stories. Overall a decent, enjoyable collection of bizarre fantasy/SciFi with some great, original ideas.
For the most part I didn't find much emotional connection, the tales were mostly about stuff happening and the exploration of quirky ideas. If there had been some more emotion or feeling or humanity them I would have given more stars.

A large collection of short surrealist fiction - not my usual taste, but there are some interesting things in here. My favorites were "Finally Fruit," about a woman who becomes a monster; "Pretending," about a group of atheists who decide to pretend that one of their group is a ghost, and "Whisper," a pretty classic creepypasta-ish story about a guy who tape records himself sleeping to prove he doesn't snore and catches something else.

This is a mystery that can't quite pull all of its components together. However, Vukcevich is often funny and sometimes outrageously so. As does Lethem in Gun, with Occasional Music, Vukcevich spoofs many of the conventions of the noir detective novel. Like the protagonists of Lethem's Motherless Brooklyn and Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Skylight Howells has characteristics that let (or make) him view the world from an unusual perspective. In Skylight's case, it's multiple perspectives--either he has a partially integrated form of dissociative (multiple) identity disorder, or he's really good at shifting his ego state. Either way, some parts of him are better than others at the various tasks associated with detective work. Vukcevich creates a character who is both competent and somewhat pathetic. Encounters along the way with the Russian mafia, secret kitchen rites, cybersex, computer documention, and the heartbreak of tap-dancing addiction almost work, but not quite. Like Skylight himself, the parts just miss coming together. I can enjoy that as a textual parallel to the protagonist's condition; if you can, too, or would enjoy the setup at least as much as you'd enjoy a more satisfactory conclusion to the mystery, read it.… (mere)
