A Fractured Mirror

In real life, terrible things happen all the time . . . tragic misunderstandings, gross unfairness, horrible maiming, premature deaths, and so on and so on.  Naturally, the realms of fiction reflect all of this and  more.

It just doesn’t tend to reflect it very well, with too many authors choosing to wallow in tragic moments to ludicrous extremes, while others chose to touch on the effects of tragedy only briefly, if at all, as if they are hoping they might ignore it into non-existence.
