FK Recommendation July 2011  

What's Good?  Nostalgia in the just-concluded FKFicFest 2011 moves me to point out "Brown Paper Packages" by Susan G. (1995, PG, ~2K words) as July's recommendation-of-the-month.  This amusing, slightly sly, "meta" story recalls when new FK tales of all descriptions arrived on the email lists every day.

    The superior look on Janette's face was irritating. Just to prove her wrong, Natalie slid onto a barstool and began reading where Janette indicated. Almost immediately, her stomach dropped to the level of her toes—it was about her and... LaCroix? ... Horrified, she watched Janette briskly staple and stack set after set... "How long has this been going on?"
    "... It used to be Alma's chore, but the silly thing got the piles mixed up and Nicola received LaCroix's set in error." Janette sighed... "There was such a scene."

What's New on FKFic-L?  Nothing posted to the fiction list in June.  However, two new pieces have posted in July so far, and I imagine that August will see many of the FKFicFest stories.

Ah, yes. I've read that one before—but it's certainly worth a re-read!

My feeling exactly. :-)

That was fun. Thanks for the recommendation. I hadn't stumbled across this before.

I'm glad you had fun with it!

This may lean toward hyperbole, but... imo, there isn't an FK story by Susan G. that's not worth reading.
