The Hugo Novellas

“Big Boys Don’t Cry” is decent, and I’m only partly through it, but I didn’t “get” “Flow”. I’m not done with it yet, but so far it just seems kind of disjointed. I suppose it has its own style that can appeal to some.

But Wright’s three novellas – all three of them! – are clearly head and shoulders above the competition, and unless “Flow” or “Big Boys” improve dramatically”Pale Realms of Shade” will almost certainly be my choice. Next to “Awake in the Night” I think it’s the second best thing Mr. Wright has ever written. It’s extraordinary.
