Exotic Pets by Ken Liu

In this story, Liu tells the tale of the “werks,” half-human, half-animal constructions made as pets for wealthy humans. Through the eyes of the frog-human hero, the reader learns about humanity. I love the gritty pain of this story.

While reading, I was reminded of China Meiville’s style, particularly Perdido Street Station.
