Lost Places: 02/23/23
Lost Places by Sarah Pinsker (2023) is a collection of science fiction, fantasy, and horror short stories that take ordinary seeming situations and inject one wrong thing into them to explore various aspects of the human condition.
These stories have a similar tone to T. Kingfisher's novels. The characters and situations are for the most part ordinary and relatable. But then as the stories progress details are revealed to turn the recognizable into the uncanny.
Normally in these reviews I would talk about my favorite stories. Here, though, I honestly can't pick. They all kept me turning pages. I think this is the first book of short stories that gave me a book hangover when I finished the last page.
