My previous review of a collection of short stories stated that I thought I just "didn't get them". Reading this collection of shorts showed me that I can "get" shorts. They just have to be the right ones. All of these had a proper ending, they didn't leave you thinking "what was that all about?" They had a vague collective theme, yet were all different in themselves
I particularly liked Karen in "Hot Smoke in a Cold Climate" and Herbie in "Part of a Plan". I was picturing Herbie as Jake in the American drama "Touch".
I rate Ray Kingfisher as one to watch for the future.
