Wicked Indianapolis is a collection of short stories detailing events in Indianapolis, around Indianapolis, or at some times only mentioning Indianapolis. In general, the stories are interesting for someone living in Indy because they detail parts of long ago Indianapolis that the reader may not be aware of. The writing is generally good, but I found myself stumbling over a few sentences where I eventually identified the grammar as being in error. The author also insists on providing the years that each person lived in parentheses following the first mention of their name. This is useful when accurate, but there is a specific instance where the author mentions Earl L. Butz (1909-2008) and then proceeds to explain at the end of the short story that “He died at ninety-eight in 2010,”
The political short stories aren’t the most fascinating, but I am finding some of this 138 e-book interesting. An interesting read for anyone that knows Indy? Yes. For $9.99? No.
