Pretty Monsters was possibly the funniest thing I’ve read in a while. Speed’s dry wit makes this piece stand out. Don’t judge this story by its length. It’s a great setup for a world I hope to see more of in the future – and if not, well, it was a great short story that made me laugh on a dreary October morning. I’m definitely interested in the author’s other books now, even though vampires aren’t usually my thing. Absolutely worth checking out and well worth the less-than-a-dollar I paid for it. I wish the short story was a more popular medium around these parts – I love a good short to get an idea of a writer’s style and attitude.
