Cookie_RAF" by Lly_Lou - / How I picture "The Documentarian" from "The Radiant Car Thy Sparrows Drew"

A wonderful benefit to my newly focused effort to read more published short fiction is that I keep discovering new and wonderful writers…and many of them have blogs.

I found Catherynne M. Valente’s blog, Rules for Anchorites, after coming across her short story, “The Radiant Car Thy Sparrows Drew,” tied for first place in the Clarkesworld Magazine Reader’s Poll of 2009.

“The Radiant Car…” is a decadent read.  I don’t know how else to describe it.  Ms. Valente’s training as a classicist (with an emphasis on Ancient Greek!) lends a depth to her language that both delicious and refreshing to read.  If you haven’t read this story, I urge you to post haste and enjoy.
