This story was daring and bold in its content; Racism and religious fervor can be tricky business so as not to offend the reader, but rather add depth and meaning to the story- this author nailed it perfectly. A right mixture of action, attitude and background made "The Comfort of the Shriek" a great read. The time period was seamlessly incorporated into the plot and gave it an added dimension not found in a lot of short stories. Mr. Crowder shows a brilliant knack for storytelling. I did have to read the ending over once, because I forgot the one guy's name with the boy and got confused. But all in all- I loved it.
