Story 366 Review of Magic for Unlucky Girls

Michael Czyzniejewski, whose name I must constantly c/p because spelling is lost on me, featured Magic for Unlucky Girls at Story 366 today. If you have not been following this project (shame!) he’s been reading short-story collections – one a year – for 2016. Not only am I impressed by the scope of the project, but I’ve been enjoying the attention paid to short story collections, which sometimes feels like a niche art form. Hell, my favorite book is a short story collection. 

Anyway, he reviewed “The Ibex Girl of Qumran”, a story I have mixed feelings about and almost didn’t include in the collection. However, reading his review of it made me feel much more warmly towards it. Different eyes give you different perspective.
