Having read some of Krista Bean's other short stories and enjoyed them, it was interesting to see what she could achieve in a much shorter format of around 1200 words per story. Quite a lot, actually, as she seems to squeeze quite a lot of narrative into the word count without any appreciable drop in the quality of the prose. The three stories here aren't as fully rounded as her longer stories, which is only to be expected, but they're good
snapshots which strike the right balance in terms of the
information they divulge and the amount they leave to the reader's imagination.
