My first read of Brendan DuBois and I'm impressed with this collection of short stories and really I liked the character.
Apparently he's been around for awhile but unfortunately never heard of him but thanks to friend, Jim, he passed him along with recommendation, and a good one at that. Between each story DuBois wrote something of where/when the story was originally printed, and sometimes a little about himself. This isn't necessary and is seldom done that I know of, but I really enjoyed reading the short bits.
Du Bois thinks his story through logically and they are were tightly written which is a must-do for a good short story anyway. Endings usually had a twist of some kind which I like.
Look forward to reading more of DuBois soon.
