Pictures From An Expedition [PDF]

by Alex Irvine
Short stories. I wasn't wildly enthusiastic about this collection. Some of the stories had flat, tell-y characterization. Others were using nonlinear storytelling methods to disguise weaknesses in motivation or plot.

The title story, in which the first crew to go to Mars is basically treated as a reality TV show, has both these weaknesses, which is a pity, because I'd love to have seen that premise done well.

I enjoyed "Clownfish," about a man who would be living the life of his dreams if he didn't keep thinking a fish was mocking him, and "The Golems of Detroit," which drops golems into a factory story.

The voice was good in "Gus Dreams of Biting the Mailman," but stoner philosophizing is still stoner philosophizing.
