Good read, makes you think!

Good short story. Do not go into this with the thought that it will read like one of his fathers short stories. I was impressed the "thinking" parts in this story, nice that it wasn't all spelled out for you. If you read this and haven't purchased 20th Centry Ghosts,...

    Really good

    A couple of nice shorts. I actually liked the very short bonus story more than the titled one. I think I'll give his book "A Heart Shaped Box" a read.
