Solid, competent storytelling, if not overly impressive. There wasn't a lot of variety here, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but there were even a few turns of phrase and descriptions that were used more than once. I didn't enjoy it as much overall as Goon Squad, but I did think the story "Sacred Heart" was brilliant and easily the best piece in the collection.
