The second story is quick and clever and is about childhood imagination.
With that said I think that others would really enjoy this book hidden behind its obscure title and cover.
Like the unemployable insect-alien castaway in Hill's Vonnegut-esque A Career Moment, the cover of Eight Hour Fiction isn't good at its job. (But that's OK. Someone will surely come along and give it a hand.) The alien, too, hasn't made the most of his outstanding assets, hasn't reached his full-blown potential. But when he does... heads up!
I'm dying to spoil this story, to make clinical observations about the astute employment of adolescent wet memes -- but I'd better not. I can say this:
Next up, an even shorter flash. Capture at the Hive, the author's homage to Calvin and Hobbes, champions the forces of good (a boy named General Megatron) over evil (the general's "Evil Queen Mother" and her dark list of household chores). It's sweet, but not too, and it's funny -- and, unlike the first story, it's ideal for both adults and children. IMHO, it's worth a cartoon series of its own.
