A Piercing Short Story from J.C. Miller

with 2 comments

J.C. Miller, a fellow Rosemont writer, has crafted a piercing story that almost reaches out and grabs the reader with its engaging tone.

So go check out “The Strangers,” published by “Thieves Jargon.”

And no, I won’t tell you exactly why it’s engaging – you have to read it yourself. Then come back and we can talk about it.

  1. I blogged about her story as well. It’s shocking the way she mixes extreme violence and innocence, yet I wanted to know why so I couldn’t stop reading either.

    • Shawn,

      I think the voice is really solid, as well. She establishes a matter-of-fact tone that works especially well with the subject. It’s not overdrawn or sentimental or gory, and I think that makes it a little more eerie and compelling.
