Speedloader Review from The Big Issue 2011/07/11Posted by Sandra Ruttan in Uncategorized.
SPEEDLOADER Edited by Sandra Ruttan & Brian Lindenmuth
(Snubnose Press, Kindle edition, £0.70)
Showcasing some fine noir writing, mostly from America, it’s a white-knuckle ride that takes the reader to some dark places. The overall standard is excellent, but the stand-
out stories from Matthew C Funk and Richard Thomas demonstrate what can be achieved with simple prose and a masterly use of tension. Real page-turning fiction that never resorts to cliché or stereotype.
