Stories from What I Didn’t See by Karen Joy Fowler

From the TG Groodreads group: “While we’d love for folks to strive to read all the stories, here are the ones in particular to focus on for discussion:

What I Didn’t See
Pelican Bar
The Dark
King Rat

Bonus points go out to folks who ALSO read the James Tiptree short story “The Women Men Don’t See” which Karen’s title story is in reply to.”
