Been powering through K.J. Parker's short story collection, Academic Exercises, over the last few days, having picked it up as part of the latest Humble Books Bundle. It's all vintage Parker, really; big philosophical and moral themes, wrapped up in characters full of selfishness, vengeance, petty crime, and the odd moment of goodness. I've always said Parker is one of the most criminally under-read authors currently in the field, and going through this text only confirms that impression.
In summary: It's SO GOOD.
