The simplest measure of a book review should be whether or not the book (story, novella, e-book, etc) succeeds in hitting the marks it establishes at the start. This story has no pretensions of being anything larger than itself and while we could certainly hope to see more of Mister Sun somewhere else someday, no one will be writing Mr. Ellis fan-mail and demanding that he be brought back in another story. This is funny, dark, intelligent, well-written - and over in just the right amount of time for a day's commute. What more, sometimes, could you ask for?

A quickly amusing dark tale by Fearsome Uncle Warren, Dead Pig Collector is tightly written and even whimsical. Ellis manages to fit exactly the right amount of detail in these 29 pages. ( )
