Review of “Godivy” in Paper Cities

Pete Coco in Time Out Chicago writes this review of my story Godivy:

At their best, the stories in Paper Cities do what fantasy does well: plumb ideas and symbols. Take Vylar Kaftan’s “Godivy,” a half-story, half-poem in which workers copulate with their photocopiers in high-rise cubicle warrens, thereby breeding a race of support staff. Plot and character are almost beside the point in a story like this; just imagining it all is a pleasure unto itself.

…I’m finding it interesting that reviewers seem to love or hate this story. Not much middle ground. I take that as a sign that I’m doing something right with my fiction.
