Gavin Bell shows you what it takes to make A Living over at Thrillers, Killers 'N' Chillers.

Though this story runs over ground that has been tread before, Gavin's killer isn't your everyday psycho that gets off on offing people that he's been contracted to kill. This ends up making the character interesting and worth exploring further.

Meanwhile, Col Bury has a Three-fer in the form of Nowhere To Hide, Wanted and Working From Home at Thrillers, Killers 'N' Chillers.

While I'm partial to Wanted, due to its content, I loved both Nowhere To Hide and Working From Home, as well.

Nowhere To Hide will have you going the same way it had me.

And I was reading Working From Home and, at the exact same time Bobby was lamenting that he couldn't get any work done due to kids, there was a kid running around and asking me all kinds of questions.

Pretty eerie, huh?

Last but certainly not least, Keith Rawson has taken over the writing duties of Short Thoughts on Short Fiction over at BSCreview.

In his own not-fucking-around manner that I love so much, this week Keith takes three stories (all of them by authors you know) and gives you his honest opinion about those stories.

If you think Keith is going to minch words, go back a sentence and read what I said at the start of that sentence, okay?

This week: Kieran Shea's The Come On, Liam Sweeny's The Bottle And The Cloth and Sandra Seamans' Midnight Showdown.
