Very good as far as it goes. The story is set up to be excruciatingly detailed, And sometimes that causes it to feel a little slow. Ends on an ambiguity.

MAYBE HE WAS WORKING FOR THE DEER.
This was one of the stories from METAtropolis green. I read the first book in the series and was not impressed. I love John Scalzi, but his friends can't write. Kowal had a great story in Rip-Off called The Lady Astronaut of Mars. I then read Kiss Me Twice in a Short Novel anthology and could not finish it. This I could finish, but barely. The story is that this woman takes movies and tells stories about simple things she does on earth and sells them to people who never leave their homes. She was filming deer cross the road when the story starts. From then on it is blah, blah, blah. She slowly tries to remember what happened as she tells the story and she is extremely detailed to the point of nausea.
Skip this and skip the series.
