‘Frost Mountain Picnic Massacre’ by Seth Fried

Oh my God this story is so fucking funny. 
 
It also grapples with that implausibility thing, and mankind’s unyielding tendency to normalise and to acquiesce. Seth also worked with Michael Curran, coin-er of askance, and I’m honored to be in the same catalogue as this absolute crackerjack of a bizarro storyteller.
