    One Reply to “The Species Crown”

    1. Several of the stories in The Species Crown are lighthearted, always a nice touch in short story collections. One of my favorite stories was "My Totally Awesome Funeral" first published in Hobart. Although written in the first person, there's a wonderful twist of an implied directive, the storyteller directing the reader to celebrate his passing--when the time comes. Here's a sample: "Drink another just because you can. After my wife and son have gone to bed, let the hardcore partiers hijack me [...]

    2. I strongly recommend this collection to the more literary-leaning readers of our magazine, and to those genre readers we may be slowly converting to appreciating such things. All of the included short stories were previously published in magazines such as Hobart, American Literary Review, and Night Train, between 2002 and 2007.

    3. Imaginative and inventive collections of short stories. If you've ever wondered about what the guy in the Godzilla suit is like in real life, please read this book.
