One of the best short stories you'll ever read (note the deliberate absence of question mark)

26 Monkeys, Also The Abyss

at Kij Johnson

I'm completely fucking serious. It's so good, and I don't even read sci-fi. It's so good, it makes me think to forget even trying to write short stories. It's so good it will make you really happy just to read it, if not tear up a couple of times, if you're at all like me.

It's so good that it's made me post twice in one day. This does not happen often.

Oh fuck off. Yes, the spammers are attacking but I notice I've also got a lot more traffic so that's maybe why...

I had the rare pleasure of being the first to lodge a comment on this particular spammers You Tube site.

Oh who are you, secret anonymous person? I fantasise that you are someone like Orhan Pamuk. Are you?
