Quie a while ago something really nifty happened: I got an email from Podcastle asking whether I’d be willing to read a story they bought from Ken Liu. I read the email while out to dinner with friends, because I’m the sort of rude jerk who does that.
“Is something wrong? You seem to be pondering this very seriously,” one of my dinner companions said.
“I’m trying to figure out how many exclamation points to put after the ‘OMG, hell yes,'” I replied.
I like Ken Liu stories because they’re really good at making people cry. He’s got a knack for the well delivered emotional gut punch. And this story of his at Podcastle? There will be tears, people. Many, many tears.
Because it’s hilarious.
You should go check it out, unless of course you don’t like laughter and joy. In that case, since I’m usually against them myself, I’ll understand.
