There's something very consonant about the title of this offering and the offering itself. While the 12 page story is sold in paperback as a sort of title track to a collection of short stories---because, let's face it, the thing would make a very feeble pamphlet on its own---Barnes and Noble has decided to offer it up as a standalone here. Of course if you READ THE FINE PRINT, which Doc would no doubt recommend that you do, preferably in the company of good counsel, it does indicate the page count at 12. In sum, though a fine snippet of HST madness Screwjack may be, if you decide to purchase, you may just end up feeling Screwed, Jack. Selah! On another note, what's up with the paltry HST offering for Nook. Only Vegas and a couple of others, including this rip-off, are even available. B&N does feature a little button however that you can select on each books page to let the publisher know you want it available on NOOK. I recommend everyone take advantage of that easy line of communication.
