Or at least one of them has.
Brian Hurley’s “Cups of Tea by the Dozen” is a darkly humorous rendering of attacking mosquitoes with heavy tomes of classical literature, but the text, despite its short length, still manages to temper illogical cynicism and wit with a humble, longing pathos.
The review is 42 words long, and my story is only 357 words long. That’s a sizable 12% ratio. If you were to critique DFW’s 1104-page Infinite Jest at the same rate, you’d be scribbling 132 pages.
The review also has nice things to say about Vestal Review.
The Vestal Review is a spectacularly gripping read.
