Ether, OR


With a humourous piece, you are either laughing - or NOT!

I'm afreaid that this one was quite silly - I coukd barely even finish all 15 pages.

Despite the my lack of success with this story, I do very much enjoy soemof Le Guin's delightful whimsical bits. For example, my wife and I both very much liked The Ascent of the North Face (see the collection A Fisherman of the Inland Sea).

My rating system: I begin with one star being equivalent to a rating of "C -". Progressing upwards, I add ½ star for each step, up to the maximum 5 stars, which is equivalent to a rating of "A"+. I reserve ½ star for BOMBS, there being no option of zero or negative stars.
