At the Mouth of the River of Bees [book]

At the Mouth of the River of Bees [book]

THIS IS A COLLECTION OF SHORT STORIES. IT'S BY THE LADY THAT WROTE THAT NEBULA AWARD STORY ABOUT THE FUCK AMOEBA THAT MADE ME SAY "OH GOD, FINALLY THE NEBULA AWARDS ARE BACK ON TRACK!" IN 2009. ALTHOUGH I DIDN'T KNOW THAT WAS WHO THIS WAS WHEN I GOT THIS, I JUST GOT THIS BECAUSE A STORY CALLED 'BITEY CAT' SOUNDED GOOD. ALL THESE STORIES ARE REALLY WEIRD,  AT THE MOUTH OF THE RIVER OF BEES FEELS LIKE A WEIRD DREAM THE AUTHOR HAD, A BUNCH OF STORIES REUSE NAMES EVEN WHEN IT MAKES NO SENSE (A RICHARD LIVING IN THE MONGOLIAN STEPS IN PREHISTORY) AND THE WEIRD LINKAGES LIKE THE CATS HAVING ANCESTRAL STORIES ONE WAY THEN DOGS IN ANOTHER STORIES HAVING MORE RELIGIOUS ANCESTRAL STORIES. I THINK I LIKED MOST OF THESE QUITE A BIT, HONESTLY. I LIKE THE IDEA THAT CATS SPREAD OVER MOST OF THE WORLD IN PRE-HISTORY BUT GOT TO JAPAN IN 600AD WHEN EVERYONE WAS SOMEWHAT MODERN, AND THE IDEA THERE WAS A TIME WHEN CATS WERE SPREADING FROM THE INTERNATIONAL PORTS WHERE PEOPLE REALLY WOULD BE RUNNING INTO THEM GOING "HOLY CRAP, WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS".

PS. I STILL HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IS GOING ON WITH FUCK AMOEBA.
