Summary ë eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ´ James Patrick Kelly Review ✓ Think Like a Dinosaur and Other Stories ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB James Patrick Kelly ´ 7 Download Novelette the 1995 Nebula Award nomination for Best Novelette among several other awards and nominations as well But all of the stories are excellent in their own right An insightful forward by James Patrick Kelly's friend and sometimes collaborator John Kessel Corrupting Dr Nice leads off the collection and Lafferty New Wave James Tiptree Jr A couple of things that immediately come to mind after reading so far six stories of this already excellent collection by acclaimed short story writer James Patrick Kelly I ve seen and heard of this collection for several years now recommended on sites like Goodreads and Reddit from time to time as well as my local library The cover being what it is a goofy looking dinosaur in a space suit gives an accurate but fairly narrow impression of what I have run into so farLafferty comes to mind because I was a bit caught off guard by the underlying and often outright dark tones some stories have which verge on the horrorific Kelly also have a simple but very effective style of prose that I find refreshing and readableI m struck with how varied these stories have been in style genre story theme etc the same reaction I had with Lafferty and Tiptree Tiptree comes to mind partly because some of the humor sprinkled throughout stories such as Faith though mainly because of the state of melancholy evoked after reading each storyAs much as I love horror and short stories few writers leave me having to sit down and process what I read before compelling a reread of a story that can change my mood for the entire right or wrong day A couple of these writers are Ligotti King with his stories like The Reach All That You Love Will Be Carried Away and The Woman in the Room and pretty much everything I ve so far read by Tiptree I d bow consider James Patrick Kelly among them Not to give the wrong impression that this collection is anywhere near as soul crushingly depressing as the previously mentioned writers but this collection does remind me of them albeit tenuously in regard to Ligotti Enough said for now I doubt I ll have much else to add to this review other than a couple paragraphs of reworded praise Highlights so far are probably the st novelette and Faith I can t wait for the eventual release of Centipede Press collection of his works in the upcoming Masters of Science Fiction line
