Topics About Which I Know Nothing - Patrick Ness

In his introduction Ness says he likes stories as a way to experiment. After finishing the volume, I concur. Most are successful, but the urban legends about Jesus one soon became tedious. My favorite was "Ponce de Leon is a Retired Married Couple from Toronto" which is worth at least six stars. So, a good collection for fans of Ness, for fans of short stories, and for those who study writing. If there is such a thing as a book club comprised of all writers, it would be really cool to discuss which stories work best, and why.
