    The effusiveness of that ending seemed positively Joycean. It’s refreshing that the female is the sexual deviant for a change….

    Robert, my god, I KNOW. Emshwiller writes the most genuinely complex women in the known universe, as far as I’m concerned. The Mount = required reading.

    excellent! amazing details and anxious thinking and of course well read too. I always track down the stories that I like to see if it written similarly to how you read them

    Finally got around to listening to this one-what a great story! I now have to track down everything else by this author. Why have I never heard of these people before? (And I could hear in your voice how much you liked this one. Unless that was just me.)

    So perfectly suited to your voice, this story. When she was nibbling on the cheese near his knees I pictured you taking tiny little bites from a paw-sized chunk of gouda. It made me want to see if I could make a piece of cheese, or indeed, any piece of food, last for 30 minutes (about as long as it took you to read the story, no?).
