  1. I really liked this story. It has an unexpected ending —just as many of Kelly’s short stories—, and I think the best thing about Kelly’s stories is the way she manages to constantly lead us to thinking: “okay, I know something surprising must happen, but I have no idea how she’s going to do it this time.”

    This story is one of my favourites, along with “Louise’s Ghost”. Nice choice, Jim.

    Best wishes,

    • Thanks, David. I’m enjoying this project, and I’m enjoying revisiting KL’s stories, too. Have you contacted her about translating them?


      • I did write a Spanish version of Stranger Things Happens, but I
        couldn’t contact Kelly back then in 2018. It is a great anthology,
        really fun and inspiring. I can totally understand why you like
        revisiting her stories.

        I’ll keep an eye on your post for further stories like this.

        Happy reading,
