And Then I Woke Up

And Then I Woke UpAnd Then I Woke Up by Malcolm Devlin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A stunningly original piece of science fiction-horror, Malcolm Devlin’s novella works both as a story in its own right and as a metaphorical examination of the power of narrative, from the stories we tell ourselves so we can survive to the political narratives we choose to believe. It’s an incredible piece of work that lifts a mirror to society and hits hard with the reflection it presents. If I have one complaint, it’s only that I wish it were longer so Devlin could really dig deep into the metaphor and unearth further observations. Highly recommended.
