Corey A classic, bleak, evil story. Just brilliant. The pacing is probably what makes it work so well. We come to know early on that our narrator has plans to a gristly and well-exacted revenge, and it builds to that point with such expertise and polish that I really can't imagine the story having been any shorter or longer. One of my favorite short stories.
