    star star star star
    Not a bad little story. The cover kind of telegraphed the ending a bit, but Ms. Boris produced a well-written little vignette of a couple trying to stay together. Very realistic characterizations.

    Excellent short story from Phil Frey. I hadn't thought of it before seeing the other reviews but, yes, this could easily be an episode of the Twilight Zone, or a less-murderous episode of Tales from the Darkside. I found the tale to be very enjoyable, well-written and with some excellent characterization. The three pseudo-antagonists in the tale are handled quite well. Everyone has a personality that is believable. This one is definitely worth a read!
