    One thought on “War Crimes”

    1. I've read a couple of Peter Carey's novels, and I had no idea that he wrote speculative short fiction. I mean, there are fantastical elements in his novels, but several of the short stories in this collection are straight sci-fi. And they are fantastic stories - for the most part, very dark and bleak, and really stunning writing. My particular favourite was "Exotic Pleasures", in which a young couple discover a particularly beautiful and pleasure-inducing bird.

    2. Truly surreal depictions of seemingly inane everyday evils. As someone who holds to the classic doctrine of original sin, I found Carey's collection of stories brilliantly exposed the war crimes/depravity lurking in everyone's backyard. I can't give him 5 stars because he made me smirk at it too much.

    3. Beautifully succinct and powerful short stories around the nature of the abuse of power and what it means to be human. Insightful, sparse but potent. A treat.
