The Suburban Swindle - Jackie Corley Jackie's not so much a writer as she is a zombie sorcerer. She creates these sentences that come crawling at you out of every dark corner, all naked and dirty and starving. Pretty intense and astounding stuff.

I felt the last two stories weren't quite as strong as the rest of the collection, something about the characters or the narrative threads didn't grab as tight a hold of me. But this is minor, overall it's a fantastic collection and I look forward to reading more from her in the future.

Favorites were "The Suburban Swindle" (SO GOOD) and "The Smoker in Winter".
