The Story of Harmless Bullet

Day 9 The Ark  /absurdist comedy/ When angry, count to four. When very angry, swear. My ex-wife, Martha, took the definition of angry to another level. When she realized where she was, she started to swing the raft, madly kicking the wood floor. Three muscular Hamilton sisters pressed Martha’s body against the wet boards, but she did not give up. She slipped out from under their fingers, grabbed Mr. Brahman-Carrado’s suitcase,...

The Story of Harmless Bullet

/absurdist comedy/ Day 7  A Never-Ending Race My soul soared like a heartless falcon over a wild rabbit, circling nearer and lower to the ground, to the food of its dreams. I opened my eyes — a monstrous horn grew bigger in all possible dimensions, sticking to the legs of Ms. Amblycorypha Oblongifolia eighty-one times, clockwise. After that strength-consuming procedure, she asked me to repeat the same process. I did...

/absurdist comedy/ Day 5 The Investigation I wanted to bang my head against the door, then growl till I was blue in the face, as I often did in my grandma’s house.

Their escape...

I opened my eyes as I felt the cold that emanated from a dark silhouette covering me from the bright rays of the scorching sun....

Reviews

Review not a writer; read, analyze and understand its writing, which also mirrors and reflects its thoughts and persona. Ehsan Sehgal Reviewed By Kenneth Salzmann for Readers’ Favorite – 🔆🔆🔆🔆🔆 The more than two dozen short stories in Victoria Ray’s intriguing and inventive collection, So Absurd It Must Be True, undoubtedly deliver a full measure of skillfully wrought absurdity packed into a wide range of characters and plots, from futuristic motifs...

Literature is not innocent

“When one sees one of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question, “What does it mean?” It does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing either, it is unknowable,” said Rene Magritte about his painting The Lovers. As you understand, we’ll talk about surrealism, but not about Rene Magritte in particular, although he was one of the most plagiarized artists, the true surrealist with witty and unexpected ideas. Today I’d...
