What I’m reading: Beautiful Boys by Theodora Goss

I recently read “Beautiful Boys”, by Theodora Goss, Asimovs 2012 (reprinted in Strahan’s anthology).

Nice lyrical opening and the intriguing science fictional idea (distantly related to the disturbing “The Screwfly Solution”, 1977, Sheldon). It was also cool that she kept things ambiguous (possible unreliable narrator). And the use of Omni POV was quite effective (in the part about of waitress/boyfriend).
