The Queen's Menagerie

by Chandler Groover profile


About the Story

These beasts won't feed themselves.

A puzzleless exhibition. Ten to fifteen minutes.

The Breakfast Review
Partaking of Groover is like partaking of some everlasting, continuous feast, each story just another slice of the unending line-up. There is a sense of decadence, of something delectable made from organ meat and fat. Something baroque.

Third person works well here, establishing a voyeuristic distance between reader and keeper thatís complicated by Textureís format of dragging. The platform requires slightly more input than a hyperlink, but less so than even a limited parser, and so seems particularly suited to work that deals with themes of implication, constraint, and guilt.

Rock, Paper, Shotgun
Though this is not a long piece, individual passages of prose are doing a lot of work. Dark, short, suitable for Gothic tastes, good for 10-15 minutes of play. Probably not for small children.

These Heterogenous Tasks

Itís highly Gothic; the closest comparison I can think of is Mervyn Peake, although the thematics are very much in the same general territory as With Those We Love Alive.
