5th sentence, 74th page: He had always been first in line when magazines donated by the DAR came into the library, and while his fellow inmates were busy snatching up the new catalogues and finding the pages containing pictures of women in corsets and camisoles torn out, he was paging through the proliferating motoring journals, admiring the photographs and studying the technical illustrations of motors and transmissions.

The Bandit has been released, and now he finds out about more bandit on the Western Frontier.


This is a nice, easy and super quick read. It’s not necessarily one that completely drew me in. but was still quite fun. Definitely an enjoyable and intriguing experience. One that I would probably repeat. Although, I don’t know that I’d get heaps more out of it.

This short story was well written in style. I just… didn’t fall in love with the storyline. Even trying to write a decent review is a little difficult. So I might just leave it here…
