Everything Is Nice

Beating the nice nice nice thing to death (with fluffy pillows)

‘The Specialist’s Hat’ by Kelly Link

with 3 comments

This is that rarest of things: a disappointing Kelly Link story. It is quite slippery though, which puts it up on most of the stories in here.

Quality: **
Slipperiness: ***

Both Links’ short story collection – Stranger Things Happen (which includes this story) and Magic For Beginners – are available to download for free from Small Beer Press. Do so at once.

Part of Feeling Very Strange

  1. Funny, I completely disagree with you – I find it not slippery at all, but scary as hell, and therefore a win.

  2. It is certainly creepy but scary? Nah, the dad is too cartoony for that. It isn’t a bad story but it gets extra harsh treatment cos this is Link we are talking about.

  3. Every Link dad is cartoony – I just pretend they aren’t.
