Kaellis' definition of fable is slippery, but his sense of morality and his sense of whimsy are both alive and well. What I want to do is spread holy insecurity, promote festering doubt, and inculcate a pervasive sense of gnawing agony (preface). I read two of these essories (a hybrid of essay and story) and enjoyed them both, though they are a long way from fable. Both Leaving Things Behind (1) and A Giant's Robe Upon a Dwarfish Thief (45) are thought-provoking reflective reveries.
