Sep 26, 11

Read from September 19 to 24, 2011

Collection of short stories a couple of which pre-date the first Archer novel. They're generally worth reading, but MacDonald didn't make his reputation on the strength of his short fiction. The plots are OK. And the dialogue is generally fine. But the penchant for the bad-guy to enter in to a long confession at the end of each story is tiresome and silly.
