This is a nice little collection of shorts from Matt Wallace. I wasn't familiar with his work until I found out about this book from Apex Publishing, so I really appreciated his introductions to each story.

There's quite a variety of stories, all of them worthwhile. There is only one story I feel is significantly weaker than the rest, and it's about the shortest one.

The three standouts for me are "Another Man's Run" a macho tale of self pity, lost chances and redemption. I also really enjoy "Del
Highest recommendation. The tales here are simultaneously brutal and deep, achieve both a catharsis and thoughtfulness on the part of the reader, which is the most anyone can hope to get out of story. Matt also has a smooth mastery of words, comparable to few others.

Disclaimer: I do know the author personally.
A brilliant collection of short stories. I love how quickly he can create believable worlds that are just-different-enough from our own. It's sci fi, but it doesn't really feel like it all that much, because more important is the narrator's voice in each story.
This was a fun read in a Matt Wallace dystopian kind of way. More importantly it provides insight into Mr. Wallace and an opportunity to see the growth in his writing.
