As a short story, American Crow is a 'Fairy Tale of Urban Decay' that describes events that transpire when two older men encounter two young thugs on a repeated basis. The result is comedic mayhem and Chaos, where BillyBob, a seemingly omniscient black crow looks upon events with great interest. In the end, it's a song of redemption that only he can sing! Rated R for profanity and violence.

I REALLY LIKED THIS STORY, and it was FREE! It was a well written and rapidly moving account of inner city problems with people trying to find themselves empowerment, and meaning. It was a little gritty at the beginning, but I was forewarned. Ended with a positive message and that was the part that made it good.
Yes, it is well written, Interesting dark folklore, about urban decay in inner cities, male aggression, but ends hopefully.
This story has stronger fantasy elements than merely seeing it as an allegorical fairy tale. However, it is a very interesting if not sociological indictment about the disconnects in the modern world . There is always hope for transformation even in dark places--and this story is well worth your time. I went on to read the author's poetry and found it delightfully less dark, but incredibly romantic and hopeful.
55 pages, well written.
