As a huge fan of thriller fiction, I am surprised and so pleased to see these stories here. I have had to defend my love of this genre to other literary friends many times. It is hard to write these stories well and you have chosen some of the best. Thank you for such a wonderful treat.
I was surprised, and pleased, too. Genre fiction can be more artful, more truthful to life--Philip K. Dick, Tabucchi, Sciascia, Simeno--than much of what passes as literature these days. Thank you for the treat and some new authors to look into.
