    This is the second book I've read from this author. I am once again enthralled by the lushness of the prose. There's a very poetic aesthetic in the way words are strung together, and an almost dreamlike quality that imbues the work. I seem to find my soul nourished in a way that I can't precisely define, and that I haven't experienced with many other writers. As with the other novel I've read, the story in this book unfolds gradually, unfurling itself with each chapter. In this case, about every This is the second book I've read from this author. I am once again enthralled by the lushness of the prose. There's a very poetic aesthetic in the way words are strung together, and an almost dreamlike quality that imbues the work. I seem to find my soul nourished in a way that I can't precisely define, and that I haven't experienced with many other writers. As with the other novel I've read, the story in this book unfolds gradually, unfurling itself with each chapter. In this case, about every other chapter is a short story, and these are loosely tied together. I am a fan of non-traditionally styled works, so I really like this format. I did feel as though the overarching story was a bit of an afterthought, and could have been more strongly developed - this meta-story was the weakest element of the novel for me as I never felt truly connected to those characters. Much more vivid were the short stories (some were amazingly concise, and the sheer variety in subject matter and setting was staggering). The editing in this book also needed another pass. There were a number of homonyms and one unintentionally (I presume) hilarious almost-homonym: the character was a writer who was attacked by her story ideas and ended up in a "comma," rather than a coma. It would have been sheer pun perfection had it come across as intentional, but alas, it read as a typo rather than a clever twist. I definitely did not find this work as strong and cohesive the novel I'd previously read from this author. Having said that, the quality of the prose, the variety in the subject matter of the short stories, and that this was clearly designed to make a collection of short stories more interesting to a reader (given that some are credited with prior publication dates), it's still an impressive read. I wish this had been my first encounter with E E King's writing. I think, had that been the case, I would have been far more effusive in my praise for the novel than I am - simply because, as good as this is, well, it gets better. I received a free copy through Voracious Readers Only.

    I tend to binge on writers - and I'm on a King binge- This, like Pandora's Card Game is a series of linked stories. The narrative is sometimes trippy and sometimes human and personal. King is always thoughtful and interesting, sometimes funny and usually dark. Good if you like a bit of thinking with your fiction.

    The Truth of Fiction by E.E. King is a story of stories, a top level story where short stories are presented in a context which ties them all together. Some of the short stories were previously published in various places, some are previously unpublished. Elizabeth Eve has so many short stories in her back catalog she could probably do four or five of these. An unimaginative author might just slap a set together and call it an anthology. But Ms. King is definitely imaginative, so we have this de The Truth of Fiction by E.E.

But Ms. King is definitely imaginative, so we have this delightful offering. She certainly has a talent for taking old myths or tales and making them more interesting. I would have appreciated these stories even in a more mundane setting, but tying them together takes one to the next level. This is how it should be done, folks!
