Brody's book of short stories - some creepy, some thought provoking, all deliciously outlandish - lives up to its name. Short bits of friction, just enough to weird you out, ruffle your feathers, or make you think, 'well, yes that is the logical conclusion of making corporations people, too.'
My absolute favorite of the collection is 'Seven-Year Glitch', partially because I love androids (and this explains my second favorite, 'Sweetheart'), and partially because I love the question of what makes us human and what defines humanity. Can non-humans have or show humanity? Because certainly actual humans can lack it...
I think the story that creeped me out the most wasn't, as I would have suspected, 'Blutnacht', but actually '39.99'. Corporations are way scarier than vampires, any day. I realize that now.
And in the spirit of transparency, I tell you that I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Which this is.
