Even Greater Mistakes

By Charlie Jane Anders
Even Greater Mistakes by Charlie Jane Anders digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

In her short story collection, Even Greater Mistakes, Charlie Jane Anders upends genre cliches and revitalizes classic tropes with heartfelt and pants-wettingly funny social commentary.

The woman who can see all possible futures is dating the man who can see the one and only foreordained future.

A wildly popular slapstick filmmaker is drawn, against his better judgment, into working with a fascist militia, against a background of social collapse.

Two friends must embark on an Epic Quest To Capture The Weapon That Threatens The Galaxy, or else they’ll never achieve their dream of opening a restaurant.

The stories in this collection, by their very outrageousness, achieve a heightened realism unlike any other. Anders once again proves she is one of the strongest voices in modern science fiction, the writer called by Andrew Sean Greer, “this generation’s Le Guin.”

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

“Half of the stories were incredible, but I found the other half to be kind of a slog to get through”
“I'd already heard the first story on this anthology, "As Good As New", in an episode of Levar Burton Reads and it's one of my favorites. Other favorites: "Rat Catcher's Yellows" (really liked this one) "Six Months, Three Days" "Power Couple" "Don't Press Charges and I Won't Sue" "The Bookstore at the end of America"”
“I love most of Charlie Jane’s work, and this collection of short stories is on the list of faves. Some of the stories will be familiar if you’ve read “Six Months, Three Days, Five Others” - if I recall at least two of the stories in the collection were reprints. Charlie Jane Anders is a master of the well-crafted short story, and I’m so happy to see her return to the form (especially after a disappointing YA debut). These stories are packed full of the magical and the surreal, as well as plenty of beautiful queer energy. Read it!”
