The Circular Library of Stones

Sometimes I love a story because it's smart or funny or makes me think or just takes me away for a little while. Sometimes I love a story purely for the way its written, the way the words flow, their surprising cadence, their outrageous flirtations with each other. Sometimes I can't say why I love a story, only that it knocks me flat.

A perfect example of this latter category is Carol Emshwiller's "The Circular Library of Stones." I have one word for this story: wow. Some of you (and you know who you are) need to find this story and read it so we can love it together.
