A woman, confronting her convicted rapist, becomes obsessed with finding a way to kill him.
A neo-nazi begins to see beyond the hate and violence on which he has based his life.
How do people wind up in prison?
Once there, can they change?
What's the aftermath of a violent assault on victims and their families?
What kind of a toll do jails and prisons take on those who work there?
These are a few of the questions confronted by the characters in R.C. Goodwin's collection of stories, The Stephen Hawking Death Row Fan Club. The questions don't make for easy answers, and the characters don't fall into clear-cut categories.
Taken together, the stories illuminate some of society's darkest corners. Goodwin's experience practicing psychiatry in correctional settings for over twenty years adds depth and authenticity to them. His stories offer unexpected turns and endings, as well as surprising doses of gallows humor.

CAPTIVATING READ After voraciously reading R. C. Goodwin’s more recent book MODEL CHILD, I was anxious to get my hands on this one. Each story takes you inside a character’s head from a unique perspective that few can write from. His writing is smooth and easily pulls you in. I look forward to his next novel.
