Good short read. I found it a bit cliched, but not too much, and the ending was pretty damned good.

This story is pretty solid. The writing style is good, and I spotted only one cliche in the whole story. The plot is interesting, and does leave me wanting more. This is the sort of story that one could probably make a novel out of. I am interested in what the monster was.

Overall, not a bad little story.

Cool setting and story, though not as tightly written as "Quickly In and Quickly Out". Combine the pace and flow of QIQO with the story line of "And There Were No Cars on the Road" and you got a great read. The writer has a good mind, and is going to hit a home-run soon. I'll keep reading.
