Kelly Link's subtly dark and mystical short stories will make your day to day life feel slightly more interesting and fantastic than it typically seems. Bits of horror and magic are sprinkled throughout these stories, and Link's voice navigates them with a modern candor that will appeal to literature fans and fantasy readers alike. She is probably a wizard, and the book has a ferret on the cover. You wish that you had a ferret, because it's like if a rat ate a slinky. Reading this book will let NASA take you into outer space without having to undergo any of the training.
