    A Fantastic Book Really There weren t any stories in this book that I didn t like Some of these stories are humorous and had me laughing out loud, this is something I don t do very often Well worth reading despite any negative remarks Now I m going to get looking forstories by R.A Laverty

    3.3 A mixed bag of Lafferty stories, including some of his earliest The Wagons, his first published story Some I d never seen before, others had been previously anthologized Six Fingers of Time Seven Day Terror All The People There are examples of some of Lafferty s themes the Institite of Impure Science Through Other Eyes and the Wreckville Gang Aloys Adam Had Three Brothers but most are unrelated, stand alone stories While not his best short work try Nine Hundred Grandmothers 3.3 A mixed bag of Lafferty stories, including some of his earliest The Wagons, his first published story Some I d never seen before, others had been previously anthologized Six Fingers of Time Seven Day Terror All The People There are examples of some of Lafferty s themes the Institite of Impure Science Through Other Eyes and the Wreckville Gang Aloys Adam Had Three Brothers but most are unrelated, stand alone stories While not his best short work try Nine Hundred Grandmothers it s still Lafferty, with his twisted humour and his unique lyrical style Good for completists and budget readers the e book is very economical compared to other collections

    I learned of R.A Lafferty from Neil Gaiman who cited him as an influence and a delightfully original author He is all of that and a bag of chips These stories are so wonderful and many of them are original and even when he goes after an old trope, say a man who can stop time, his approach is so new and so fresh that I could scarcely believe this was written before I was born Great book.

  5. says:

    Great for what it is An uneven collection with flashes of brilliance and sly, dry, often dark wit You get a sense of why writers like Neil Gaiman revere Lafferty

A fun little ditty I guess 4 5 Mcgonigal s WormA very good piece, but let down somewhat by its ending.5 5 The Polite People Of PudibundiaA spine chilling, detective ish story with an intriguing premise, but again let down just a little by its ending I wish this story was a much longer novel Also, I can t help but facepalm at the rash stupidity of the detective.3 5 In The GardenOnce again a very good piece, but with an ending akin to legs on a snake, superfluous and besmirching the whole piece Argh.5 5 All The PeopleYes Great piece, and great ending too A very humanising story despite the lack of actual humans.5 5 DreamYes, yes, yes, this is the Lafferty magic back again 4 5 The WagonsI feel like there s something to get here, but I just don t get it And yet, I still enjoy reading it.4 5 Other Side Of The MoonAuch, triggered.52 5 The Ugly Sea 4 5 Saturday You DieA somewhat stomach churning piece, with an umm, lol ending This was what it was like to be a kid

    I had heard of R A Rafferty for years and read a few of his stories but decided to take a closer look when I read that Neil Gaiman had been inspired by Rafferty The stories in this collection are short stories orginally published in the early 60 s in the sci fi and fantasy pulp magazines, such as Galaxy and If magazines The subjects are similar to Gaiman s work but generally on the lighter side I particularly enjoyed the humorous stories, The 7 day Terror and Mcdonalgal s Worm.

  8. says:

    Very good This was a new name to me, but he is at least on the par with Cuttner And his stories are not a bit dated

  9. says:

    A dull, completely forgettable collection of 18 shorts At the 50% point I was just reading to get done with it Even with a few chuckles and plot twists here and there, it was a yawn.

    Me he enamorado Original, extra o, inteligente, divertido, absurdo Hay altibajos, pero tambi n verdaderas genialidades Una pena que la mayor parte de la obra de Lafferty est descatalogada.
