The Backwards Aladdin

Excerpt from my real-time review here of FLASH IN THE PANTHEON (Gloomy Seahorse Press 2014) by Rhys Hughes:-

The Backwards Aladdin
"You can't wish to be something you already are."
Absurdity gives birth to wise truths, often simply with a single ricochet from an infinite niddala of mutual rubbings by souls that possess things to be rubbed and with which to rub.
To be woken to each day by these Hughes' fictions is to wake indeed. Each a fastbreak flash to ignite my brain.
An aging brain, though. There's the rub.
