Book Review: The Taste of Different Dimensions by Allen Dean Foster (three stars)
“This contravenes every known law of nature!” “Did I not say it represents a new way of looking at the world?”
Anthology of short fantasy fiction. Most are expanded one-liners: starting with a slight deviance from normal and ending with an ironic, even horrible twist. Foster writes better than most of his contemporaries.
“You could say that Morty’s very good at foreign languages.” “For instance?” “He can speak chocolate.”
The farther you read, the more terrible the twists. I am not a fan of horror. I skimmed the last two stories. Creeped me out.
“Alas, there seems to be a problem.” A catch. There was always a catch. “What problem?” “You are not a cat.”
