    One thought on “Some Gods of El Paso

      It was a myth, as Lorna and Vix already knew, that everyone who sorrowed longed specifically and only for joy. Many people wanted darker medicine. Prohibition of alcohol had created a countrywide yearning for other forms of depressant—though no one referred to alcohol as such—and by the time Lorna and Vix met, ten years into Temperance, everything to do with high and low had become illegal. People were supposed to be living in the middle, but nobody liked the middle. New cures for pain were [...]

      Soon after they met, Vix and Lorna realized there was a sweet market in fenced emotion, and though they’d never done this before, they started dealing along with their healing. The miracle makers had an easy supply of raw materials for what half the country craved. They had particular access to desperate love, which was cut with rage and sorrow, and for which people paid extra. Desperate love could be shot into a vein.Despite the shift in their business, Lorna and Vix still thought of themselv [...]

      Very good short. The adventures of the thieves of emotions. Very clever.

      I just finished reading this very imaginative short story about a couple like no other. Lorna Grant and Vix Beller heal and help a lot of desperate people, and one day decide to deal these emotions. They might be helping people in their own unique way, but there are authorities that think otherwiseI recently read Seam and Solder and got swept away in it. Now, the same thing has happened with this story. I love how this author's writing style can place you deeply into a particular genre, and then [...]

      "In secret dens in Manhattan, high rollers mixed powdered powerlessness with seltzer and drank it with a twist. In New Orleans, the drink that had formerly been bourbon punch got drizzled with barrel-aged despair, and backroom saloons poured it by the ladle-full. Most people cut rage into lines and snorted it, all to feel a little of the old days, the vigor and foolish giddiness that came just before a bar fight."Another Tor short story. I love the style of this one. A fantasy set in 1920s Ameri [...]

      I love asci-fi, fantasy, magic realism I can suspend my disbelief for almost anything except for magical cunts and cocks. Oh, and for sex workers who are not in it because they are being exploited or, at the very least, do it for the money. Sex workers doing it simply to cure people from their loneliness, that I don't buy. Although I guess that if God has given you a magical cock/cunt it must be your obligation to use it for the greater good.

      3.5, not bad, but I couldn't quite get into this story (about traffickers in forbidden emotions) enough to love it.

      A poignant conclusion.Available free online at tor/2015/10/28/some-go

      Interesting. Lets you decide what it's saying about society.

    10. Marco on said:

      While the style is exquisite, and some of the concepts quite interesting, the plot is a little too thin. After reading it I was left with the impression I just read a still rough but full of potential draft.This is the story of a couple of magical sex workers on the run from the law for stealing and illegally trading in strong emotions in 1920s US.

    11. Alex Sarll on said:

      There are beautiful lines in this, places where it reads like a Valente-style fairytale of prohibitionbut there are other places where the set-up is a little too reminiscent of the notoriously silly film Equilibrium.

    12. Kate on said:

      Interesting angle, and I kept thinking of Bonnie and Clyde since it had that kind of vibe.

      I really didn't know what to expect, but I absolutely LOVED this story.
