Juarez Square and Other Stories, by D.L. Young

I have to admit that I don’t read many short story collections. But I do read a lot of Albedo One fiction submissions. Once you’ve read more than a hundred short stories over a short span of years, it’s not so much the really neat premise or the trick ending that catches your attention – indeed, those things can often be detriments – it’s the (a) rhythm and pace of a (b) story well told that is (c) exactly as long as it needs to be. At least, that’s what I look for. Therefore, it was a pleasure to read the ten stories that comprise this short science fiction collection, that, although loosely themed, are each one unique and satisfy all of the above criteria.
