I've only got so much patience for surrealist storytelling so maybe this was not the anthology for me The early stories in the collection are the kind of dream logic based oddities that when you stumble upon them surrounded by other writers' work are interesting if a little unsatisfying in their lack of conclusion For example when Eastern European refugees hide in a magical handbag and a wayward boyfriend makes off with it the idea is clever and the writing both fantastic and absurd But each story seems progressively self indulgent I can tolerate some non linear storytelling unexplained fantastic elements the random insertion of zombies who lack all stereotypical characteristics of zombiness But not altogether In the later stories even a pretense of causality is abandoned as characters very names change from paragraph to paragraph without explanation There are bursts of brilliance all over the page with startling concepts and wry asides but the stream of consciousness suggests the ramblings of someone who's high than the discipline of a professional writer Each ends abruptly a post modern cop out in which the author has finished the part of the story that interested her and then abandoned her characters without an ending Yes I realize that this is a deliberate stylistic choice that's currently fashionable I also think the literary scene's obsession with ignoring endings is self indulgent to an extreme To be honest I have a lot of trouble remembering which story contained what they all kind of blend into each other since none end and at no point does any event influence what happens later I'm reminded of many of the works of Grant Morrison a million fascinating ideas swirling around the page and a lack of an editor to chose three sit the author down and say no stop adding ideas take these three and make an actual story out of them Beginning middle end You can even write it out of order But stop adding things and finish what you started I usually reserve a one for something that I just cannot understand how it was published Here I do understand This is literary wanking in genre form It turns out that when you add enough zombies and time travel and the Devil to modern literary conventions you end up with something that's nearly unreadable Perhaps I am too harsh The ideas and the language really do sing The uestion really does become how interested you are in story over style For me personally though these feel rather like listening to someone recount their incoherent dream from last night

Weird Modern Fairy Tales for Adults by a Writer with a Uniue Voice35 starsMy introduction to slipstream short story writer Kelly Link was her recently issued Get in Trouble I got off on the wrong foot with that short story collection and did not finish itI'm glad I gave her another chance I liked this collection Magic for Beginners a lot better although it too had some drawbacksThe author's stories are extremely creative and her voice is totally uniue although there were some vague similarities with Karen Russell's short stories She's a very talented writer with a good command of some convoluted material Her characters have great names She's got a wacky sense of humor and a great ear for dialogue especially that of kids and teens Some of the stories vaguely tie in with others Her favorite themes include the relationships between the living and the dead animals with human characteristics witches zombies etcOn the down side her stories often seemed a bit too twee and cutesy Her work could have benefited from a dollop of gravitas here and there although I suppose then it wouldn't be Kelly LinkHere's the rundown on the stories in this collection I listened to the audio1 The Faery Handbag I think this might have been the best story in the book Rebecca Lowman vocalized it really well The narrator's grandmother Zofia claims to have been born in a country called Baldeziwurlekistan Zofia tells the narrator the story of her fantastic handbag which contains worlds inside it2 The Hortlak Wonderful and strange story about two guys who work in an all night store near Ausable Chasm upstate NY near the Canadian border Apparently the Chasm is a sort of borderlandconduit between the living and the dead Some of their customers are Canadian zombies who pass through the Chasm to get to the store They are trying to figure out what to sell to zombies They have a female friend who works the overnight shift in an animal shelter and doesn't like the fact that she has to kill the dogs in the shelter Kirby Hayborne read this story expertly3 The Cannon This was a strange story about a cannon and its relationships with dead and living people The narrator is called Venus Shebby and used to be beautiful Venus was fired from a cannon to a different country where she stayed Her brother was fired from a cannon I think I'd need to reread this as some of the details escaped me Arthur Morey and Meera Simhan narrated and the audio also features Lorna Raver4Stone Animals is a wonderful tale about a family who move into a house in upstate NY that's overrun with rabbits and other strange creatures including some stone statues that seem to come alive at night Cassandra Campbell read the story uite well 5Catskin delineates the death of a witch and the life of her children stolen from humans and the histories of some strange cats including one called The Witch's Revenge This was like a demented version of a Grimm fairytale Mark Bramhall was the reader6Some Zombie Contingency Plans A guy named Soap who just got out of jail for a minor art theft crashes a party at a suburban house He meets Carly and her little brother Leo I liked this story This one's read by Robbie Daymond7The Great Divorce Alan Robley living and Lavvie Tyler dead are considering a divorce as there are problems in a mixed marriage between dead and living people Lorna Raver narrates8Magic for Beginners This is a very meta story about a boy Jeremy Mars who lives in Plantagenet Vermont and his parents and a very popular internet TV show The Library The story is meta because Jeremy is watching the show with his friends and relatives and at the same time without knowing it is a part of the show Jeremy wants to save the show's main character Fox His mother a librarian and his dad a horror novelist have a fight and his mom to get away from her husband takes Jeremy on a road trip to Vegas The dialogue especially among the kids was very realistic But the story was way too long and it dragged The audio narrator was Meera Simhan9Lull Good and very bizarre story It's too convoluted to give a summary Ed who's separated from Susan calls up a paid by the minute reader at a party and she tells him a bizarre story about himself and Susan involving the Devil aliens a cheerleader and green Susan beer from which grow multiple Susans Plus the narrative runs backwards A weird tour de force Danny Campbell is an excellent narrator

I have a strange split dimensional relationship with magic realism Sometimes we are the best of friends sometimes it worms under my skin in an annoying way Many books covet its charm but are not brave enough to attempt it but that can never be said for Kelly Link who might as well have invented it Sewn it together into a beautiful monster out of abandoned skin shed from horror and fantasy and whatever lurks in the mindLink's stories can be frustrating They are alchemical clockwork unexpected treasures made out of completely strange ideas But it's not a simple task to make such a thing understandable and sometimes it's not A lot of Magic for Beginners has no clear cut linearity The endings are often left up for interpretation and take place in a world that runs on the logic of lucid dreamingBoy but is it a uilt of fascinating tales mismatched maybe but in their entirely working smoothly together The Cannon is the tattered point As much as I like experimental writing I usually skip that one on re readsThe jewels of the collection are the ones that begin with the mundane The Hortlak easily the crown story begins with two men working in a convenience store Except it happens to be a convenience store on the threshold of a grand chasm where the dead crawl out when it's dark Some nights the dead offer things to the two clerks but they always leave the store with nothing and nobody can figure out what they wantThe Hortlak is a really haunting piece about the aimlessness people carry in their lives like it's a physical burden forever confused about what we really wantSome other favourites were Some Zombie Contingency Plans the unexpectedly Lovecraftian Stone Animals and Lull which has echoes of my own stories I first read Magic for Beginners about seven years ago and it struck a chord in me I hadn't really experienced books with this surreal uality I'd been seeking for so long Link is a difficult standard to try to live up to but I wanted to write something that gives off the same ghostly uneaseThese stories are never obvious or blatant they are like a painting they stand discreetly and wait for you to make your own decision about them and then you notice the scenes that lurk in their backgrounds that have something sinister in themTo properly enjoy Magic you have to let your sense of logic free and appeal to your imagination to listen and it will create its own meaning that's than can be said in words More books reviews and otherworldly colours on Blood Red Velvet
