Jack by Pat Cadigan

This short story is beautifully dark and impossible to put down. It has a bit of an urban fantasy feel that is reminiscent of a lot of the series that I read.

And, honestly, I get really excited whenever there is a story which features some kind of sisterly bonding – I don’t think that there’s nearly enough of these types of stories out there.

She created a kind of horrible (but also bloody brilliant) story that I look forward to reading again in the future.
