This week’s weird fiction being discussed over at LibraryThing.
Review: “The Delicate”, Jeffrey Ford, 1994.
Unlike last’s week’s weird fiction, this story is pure weirdness and has no allegory I could discern.
It’s short, three pages in The Weird: A Compendium of Strange and Dark Stories. It’s so packed with weirdness and so short that there’s little use in reviewing its plot. It would compress the story little.
