Good story, and engaging characters, but... too much detail in some things, yet the author skims through or completely skips other, important parts. The writing could use cleaning up and editing, and the story line could be tightened up a bit. I did enjoy the story, regardless.
I enjoyed this one from beginning to end, and find Mr. Schaffer's sense of humor to be wonderfully twisted. I'm not normally a big fan of the short story, but I must say that this collection was very enjoyable. I am looking forward to a full-length novel from the author.
