Surprised Face with Open Mouth“This short story collection is full of bizarre ideas, unique formatting, and queer representation. Most of the stories give a sci-fi feel with a sprinkle of horror - they reminded me a lot of Black Mirror! I really enjoyed most of these stories and thought they were brilliant. I was going to give this a 9/10 but the last story was the longest, my least favorite and really put a damper on my opinion. Overall, I can’t wait to read more from this author and am crossing my fingers for a full sized novel someday. 8/10”

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“I didn't know it was possible to love EVERY story in a short story collection but I really, really did. Honestly, it shouldn't be a surprise that Nino Cipri is the one who finally accomplished it for me, since I've also loved their novellas. Mostly sci-fi, some horror but also love and hope. Final story in particular is heart-warming and hilarious. (It might be my own grad school experience that biases me towards it.) Part of what makes me love their writing so much is the completely natural inclusion of gender expression/exploration in various narratives; then there is the almost casual magical realism/sci-fi/creature elements sprinkled among the day-to-day lives of the characters. The variety of story telling styles/formats at play here makes it even more fun to read as a collection. 1/2”
