Imagine this… you’re reading a story and start noticing after a little while that some things… don’t add up. Facts start to contradict reality, or established canon, or even one another, and you get the sense that the entire narrative structure may be attempting to “pull one over” on you. Now, it could be that you’re just losing your mind… or, it could be that you’re reading a story with an Unreliable Narrator. Today on the Tropecast, it’s “The Lies Authors Tell”. Or… is it?
