Doug Setter's novella, Selo, is about a tall skinny teen, Les, who learns how to defend himself against bullies. He gains these skills thanks to the help of a mysterious gangland character named Allan Marcus, a.k.a Matt Selo, who we meet in a hospital recovering from injuries received in his "work" in his gangland activities. A relationship develops as Matt become his tutor in standing up for himself, and Les runs various errands for him as his gofer.
I found the story to have much unnecessary dialogue, a story which would move better with good narrative. Some structural errors were found in the story. Matt could have been better developed and made a more sympathetic character, but we don't know what happens to him by the end of the story.
Still, a good read.
