This is a man's world?
I enjoy short stories but am finding it increasingly difficult to find short stories full of strongly drawn characters. Then I read Controlled Burn. The book is full of men, almost no female characters even appear & there's not a S.N.A.G. (Sensitive New-Age Guy) in the lot. Very refreshing. Enjoyed it a lot & have recommended it to several friends already. Thanks, Scott.
