Comments from Critics:
“Absolutely Vulgar” – Autistic high school student
“You should not publish this story. It is offensive. It will cost you your career. If you want your works to be taught in high schools, then absolutely do not publish this story” -Bisexual girl
The author uses this story to illustrate the how in the start of the WWIIII or so and in doing so, we get another harsh light shone upon a rarely addressed topic. Not since Amy Schumer did a skit on her show have I seen such a rip at the ‘rape culture’ that is sadly pervasive. This story is another superb example of great writing and truly fits in with the wonderful Eating Ice Cream series.
Fainting Girls – If I could, I would give this 5,000,000 stars but 5+ must do. Simply put, this is the BEST story this author has written. There’s a great skewering of the medical and pharma professions as he tells the tale of John. The description of the appearance of John, when read aloud to female co-workers, actually caused audible gasps. So, the fainting after washing his hair and putting on a snazzy shirt isn’t far fetched!
Superb story by a superb author – my fave author of the 21st century.
