    One of the things I like about free fiction Monday is I can read blindly into a story and let all the mysteries unfold because I am free of genre orientation. I think if I read this in a sci-fi magazine or anthology I wouldn’t have liked it as much as I did here where all the nuances became distinct and resonant notes in this beautiful composition.
    So many ideas to toss about in my head – beautiful.

    I don’t know what to make of this. Well written, though.

    I do not like that the story ends with Emily walking away to her suicide. I do not like the suicide element at all. But your story, not mine.

    I suppose I shall have to put this story in the same box with Harlan Ellison’s work: Disturbing.
