Postcards from Monster Island, by Emily Devenport

Clarkesworld Magazine, April 2015; 7,112 words
Rating: 2, Not recommended

Giant monsters invade a US city, but a group of eccentric neighbors stick around anyway.

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The lighthearted descriptions of the different monsters are a delight to read.

Con: Even for a piece not meant to be taken seriously, the events and dialogue make suspension of disbelief difficult or impossible. The president's e-mail to Bernadette is a particular low point.
