Pining to Be Human: 11/19/11
>"Pining to Be Human by Richard Bowes" in the July / August issue of Fantasy and Science Fiction is the third of his semi-autobiographical science fiction stories. While I enjoyed the first one and sort of liked the second by this one I am done. I don't want to read any more of his rambling stories.
In this one a boy who has been molested is told by others that he might be something other than human. He spends his time waffling back and forth between believing and denying the evidence before him.
How it comes out in the end, I'm not really sure. I was too bored by all back and forth to pay full attention.
