Homesick by Nino Cipri

homesickI love speculative, fabulist fiction, and Nino Cipri’s short story collection Homesick delivered. The formats of some of these stories were so creative.

“Which Super Little Dead Girl Are You” is written as a quiz.

“Dead Air” is an epistolary short story, using recordings, and whoa was it ever creepy!

In “Before We Disperse Likestar Stuff,” speculative elements served as a backdrop to give us a taste of Cipri’s talent for writing character-driven stories.

Homesick put me in awe of the breadth of their imagination. I really enjoyed this collection, just as much as I loved their novel Finna.
