“What profound silence! Not a single bird-note was heard in the sky over this grave in the hollow of the mountains. Only a lonely light lingered on the cedars and mountains.”
I really loved the way each character vented their own, different perspective. It makes for a fantastic read. My only quibble and the reason for deducting one point, is that there wasn't more of it. Proof positive that 14 pages can still pack a punch. I mean there's rape, murder, violence and intrigue and who knows the truth? One gets closer to it with each step.

I dread to say it and yet the brevity of the stories seemed like they were....pullling out of the station before the last stop shall we say? I guess you could say they are a bit of a tease - they stop just when things are getting interesting. Perhaps that's why I didn't give this a five. I think the first story, Pornography, is brilliant and rather a good advertisement for condoms, particularly if your paramours number in the greater than one bracket.
