The art of “the quickie”; six reviews from the March 15 issue.
Reviews of Anne Bishop’s Murder of Crows, Patricia Briggs’s Night Broken: A Mercy Thompson Novel, Mur Lafferty’s Ghost Train to New Orleans, Daniel Price’s The Flight of the Silvers, Jeff VanderMeer’s Wonderbook, Ben Aaronovitch’s Broken Homes, Chris Marie Green Only the Good Die Young, and a list of titles from the February 15 issue.
Urban fiction dialog weighs in on the rough side laced with insults and profanity. There’s also name calling to challenge a rival or just to be a hater.
