Comments for Unpossible
The penultimate story in October/ November issue of Fantasy & Science Fiction goes back to the theme of death and loss but from the perspective of someone left behind.
Author Daryl Gregory's story telling style is one part Rod Sterling and one part Michael Ende. He beautifully blends a widower's sorrow with the magic of childhood imagination.
On a day when he should be cleaning out the house before putting it on the market, the protagonist digs through the attic full of his memories: that of his wife and son who have died and that of his own childhood. At the very back, having dug through the layers of his life he finds his old bike, his chariot into the unexplored lands of imagination.
