Stories from Fantasy & Science Fiction Jul/Aug 2017:

Sean Adams tells his tale, “An Obstruction to Delivery,” in 31 numbered reports. The postal service has gone underground, delivering mail via a massive network of tunnels, enabling recipients to pick up their daily distribution of letters and packages from a box in their basements. The reporterly format distances the narrator from story’s events, amplifying their absurdity. While I admire the unusual approach, the distance delayed engagement with the action until deep into the story.
