A good introduction to Nick Mamatas's work and thought. Aboard an unnamed starship carrying postflesh billions toward survival, the Planetbreaker has one job. He walks the stars embedded in the virtual dome of night and, when he tires of a world, throws a small black stone over his shoulder, and entire societies blink out of existence. The work is necessary, or so he insists. But the Planetbreaker’s son has his own ideas. Meanwhile, in “The Strange Case Of,” Mamatas gleefully blinks sentimental, shopworn ideas out of easy acceptance. “The Twin Dragons of Sentimentality and Didacticism” explores the dangers and pleasures of Animal Rescue. But listen. That “Ring, Ring, Ring” (and so forth) you hear is the dreaded ouija phone connecting the living with the dead. And it’s for you. Of course we include our predictably unpredictable, outrageously rageous Outspoken Interview with Mamatas. Also for you.
