F&SF MiniReview: The Recreation Room by Albert E. Cowdrey

The Recreation Room, by Albert E. Cowdrey was an interesting piece that reads like a first hand account of a survivor of hurricane Katrina. The fantasy elements are minimal; they could almost be taken as coincidence. The piece reads like a character study of Jim Guest, the protagonist.

I have not read any fictional accounts of hurricane Katrina; in that respect, this was a very interesting story. The story has a very ‘true’ feel to it; that might not count for much coming from someone only familiar with the incident through the news, but it is meant very much as a compliment.
