This is the intro bit. Normally I think up something to put here. Today I did not.
- Celestia Hates Us All by Horse Voice
A good story. Classic speculative fiction form of story.. A concept wrapped in a story told by one of the characters of events leading up to the present of the character telling the story, with a somewhat ominous end that implies that things have not actually ended. It didn’t really grab me though. Didn’t feel like a Versebreakers story. Using my basic rule of thumb, swap out the element for something else and see how much of the story needs to be rewritten, it does seem like the music could easily be replaced by magic or mad science or what have you. Whereas the Versebreakers stories from the collection were much more embedded in the music itself. Or so my admittedly faulty memory tells me.
