Before reading this post, I suggest you read Evil Robot Monkey on Mary Robinette Kowal’s blog. It’s only about 5 minutes long!

I’ve decided to add in a bonus short story discussion at the end of every month. Why? Because short stories are often neglected in the literary world, making way for Best Selling Novels. Short stories are great! Quick and smart, they’re the perfect way to fit reading into an uber busy lifestyle. But enough about short stories, let’s talk about Evil Robot Monkey!

I’ve not yet read a short story that I’ve engaged with as much as I have with Mary Robinette Kowal’s Evil Robot Monkey. Of course, I should know better than to doubt a Hugo-award winning author when she says “I will write a story called Evil Robot Monkey and it will make you weep.”
