Every once in awhile I come upon a story by an author that I like, that many others seem to like and, lo and behold, it has a low score. I like to read those stories. What I generally do not read are stories with much sex, and there are of course exceptions to that, "Three Square Meals" comes to mind. SOL has storytellers and it has authors and it has wannabes. I have a lot of respect for wannabes because I are one and I am filled with excuses as to why I do not sit down and write a story instead of a history paper.
Lubrican has gifted the readership of SOL with a fine satirical story, riffing off a dozen different fairy tales and his own creative, marginally warped, mind. And the grateful readership of SOL has thus granted it a score of 726. What the fuck dudes? It's a short story, it is self contained and consistent, it has no typos or grammatical errors (that I spotted), and it is, of all things, cute. It also comes to an end Wednesday. So hop on board now or forever live a life of regret and despair. (I need a sarcasm font.)
A story with the title, "The Frog Prince," does not require a lot of description. We already know what it is about: eschatology and neuroscience. (Really need that font.)
It gets an 8 for plot (not really original) a 10 for technical, and a 10 for interest to the reviewer. And not only those great scores, in addition Lubrican did not misuse the words enervate, enormity or, bemused. That accomplishment deserves, all by itself, a higher score.
A word of warning, if you find yourself wacking off to this story, get help.
