Abstract:The Casually Strange is a collection of four short stories with a primary focus on comedy and the absurd. To be absurd is to be untrue, illogical, and in violation of common sense. The short stories in this collection use that strange lack of sense for humor. “Progress” is about a college student, Lee, struggling with coding a video game and writing its story; her roommate, Jean, tries to give her some support. “Roads” is about Jean attending a Libertarian get together with Lee, but underneath the party’s selfish ideology is something darker. “omUS” is about the pair coming into possession of an evil floppy disc that forces them to waste money. “Dog-Sitting” sees the duo watching a dog for an eccentric couple on the verge of divorce.
