Short stories I enjoyed this month:
Two's Company by Joe Abercrombie. So this was a little on the grimdark side and also full of gore, and yet somehow also a hilarious delight? Not sure how that worked but I'm pleased about it. Plus, queer lady narrator who is 1000000% done with everything, excellent.

Kid Dark Against the Machine by Tansy Rayner Roberts. I just have a lot of feelings about superheroes, I don't know if you knew. ♥ ♥ ♥ Plus, a version of Batman that (just about) stayed on the right side of my Batfeelings is not something to sneeze at.
