More Stupefying Stories (from the Showcase and ebook magazine)

"A Hole" by Jason Armstrong

A guy comes over to fix a hole in a wall for a six-pack.  He finds doll furniture.  Super cool premise that didn't quite get its feet off the ground.  Dang.  (I was rooting for the story since I've lived in Nebraska, too.)

"In Vino Veritas" by Anatoly Belilovsky

Taking off of Poe's "The Cask of Amontillado", Belilovsky veers away from Poe's original, told from the other guy's perspective.  A tale of wine, women and song.

"We Talk Like Gods" by Jon David

A small treat.  Talking mice versus humans.  Interesting, fresh perspective.  It takes two traditions of these kinds of tales and mashes them up.
