Binibus Barnabus by Robert Goodin
Man, these Robot Publishing books are quick reads. I donâ€™t think any of them have taken me any longer than two minutes to get through. Not that thatâ€™s necessarily a bad thing, mind you. This one is about Binibus Barnabus (obviously) and how he falls in love with a creature he sees in the water. Odd and more like a fable than a traditional mini, but not bad. This seems kind of suppressed somehow, like he had a lot more to say but felt obligated to put it all in this small book. Iâ€™m getting that mostly through the casual asides that he throws out to flesh out the main character that never go anywhere. Strange how Iâ€™ve read two of these today and theyâ€™re both about a man falling in love with an aquatic creature. I got this one through Top Shelf too, and you could do a lot worse.
