The Best Fiction of 2015


Get In Trouble, Kelly Link

Kelly Link’s strange and poignant story collection defies categorization: geek culture meets literary fiction meets fantasy and fairy tale and satire. There are ghosts and vampire boyfriends, cosplay and stark realism. But the collection is never unbelievable or manipulative; considering the way it used pop culture tropes to access something incredibly real, it’s no wonder Get In Trouble was one of 2015’s most-discussed works of fiction. — SS
