Episode Discussion

Dead at the Feet of a God – read it on Beneath Ceaseless Skies

A story written in reverse chronological order. Wasserstein plays with linear narrative by revealing additional information by going back in time. By wrapping a past with a return to the present the reader gets a clear juxtaposition between the world of the past and the world of the present and the motivation of the main character.

The world of the past builds on the additional loss of the main character. Of meeting and possibly falling in love, and then going farther back to see that the society has changed into this worship of this new god.
How the theme of “chipping away” ties in with the character by utilizing this non-linear juxtaposition between past and present.




Pattern Recognition – read it on Daily Science Fiction

A work of anti-humor, where an expectation is set up and then is intentionally not resolved.

The dangers of anti-humor. Once the punch line of the joke is known, you cannot have it used on you again. The length of setup of the joke must be taken into account so as to not appear that you’re wasting the audience’s time.




Like Birdsong, the Memory of Your Touch – read it on Fantasy Magazine

A stream of consciousness.
Isaac and Reid dig into the possibilities of the meanings in this abstract weaving of thoughts.
