Well… this was an odd one for sure. Surprisingly or perhaps not surprisingly, Maya was the only one who enjoyed The Rat King. This story, about a woman who finds herself drawn to the rat king, lent itself to interesting discussion. In this episode, we discuss the structure, characterization, lesbian drama and the juxiposition of these two very different relationships.

Don’t forget to rate the story! We rated it a 4.9, for the history of our goofy system, see Anais’ post “Read Short Stories or Ray Bradbury Cries.” On a scale of 1-6 Bradberries, how do you rate The Rat King?
