Review by: Tina H. on June 19, 2011 :
I like the concept, but it did leave me with a need for more of the story. There is such a mystery surrounding the Zodiac, it would be great to expand and explore that. But as a short, the characters were vivid and it was fun to read about their brief experience with the bar and grill. This piece has a Stephen King feel to it.

This is a great example of a classic short story. Although brief, it leads the reader to a fulfilling ending. Follow Bob as his domineering wife bulldozes her way to the unexpected.

Review by: Deborah Krider on May 26, 2010 :
Written with an Outer Limits-like feel, this story is wonderfully strange. It's well written, and the characters are sharply defined. When I finished, I wanted to take Bob out for a drink . . . as long as it wouldn't be at the Zodiac. Fun story!
