Bleh. I really should have typed up the clever idea I had earlier. It’s gone now. So I waited until I was severely depressed to write up this post. Bleeergh.
Next morning edit: In an effort to have something other than a depressed ramble, I will now use hard data to prove which number is best. Using, of course, the big master review list. I saw a review for Five Hundred Murders and realized that I had seen a lot of titles with Five in the name. So thought that would be the highest one. Nope. Also, nobody likes the number eight apparently.
- One: 215
- Two: 54
- Three: 28
- Four: 9
- Five: 16
- Six: 11
- Seven: 13
- Eight: 3 (plus one Neighty-Four)
- Nine: 11
And now for the pony reviews.
- The Unbearable Lightness of Bucking by Loganberry
- Potato Run
- The Waters of Myinnkyun’s Harbor
Hee. Decent story with a fun punchline. Pie metaphors about the nature of existence for the win.
“Just… hold the potato, Twilight.”
Lost Cities by Cold in Gardez – The Waters of Myinnkyun’s Harbor
I suspect that if I had read the story this refers to, it would have gotten more of a reaction. It still got some mind you. It’s nearly impossible for a Cold in Gardez story to be bland after all. Yet it didn’t have the same sense of history and wonder. (? I had a different word to put in here, but forgot it by the time I got there. Wonder will do.) Anyway, got me thinking of my Lost Cities idea that I really should write out sometime. Or at least get more than the first couple of lines and the idea worked out.
