A slug recaps what happened in his/her perspective. ( )

“Half a Conversation, Overheard While Inside an Enormous Sentient Slug” by Oliver Buckram is one of the oddest but most delightful short mystery stories I’ve ever encountered. It’s exactly as the title says; we hear only the voice of a sentient slug. As a servant of the late Lord Ash, he is being interviewed by an inspector investigating Lord Ash’s murder. The slug isn’t sorry about the murder, as Ash was a cruel and capricious master, who, for instance, liked to spill salt on the slug and laugh. On the other hand, the murderess, Lord Ash’s wife, was kind to the slug—so it’s ironic how cooperative the slug is in explaining her culpability to the inspector. Or is it?

This tale, unique in both plot and style, had me chuckling throughout. It’s very short but works well.
