Morgan Goodman has, to date, lived in 11 houses across Australia and in the UK where he was born. My favorite here is �Accidental Tourists� about a couple of voyeurs who find love at the scene of a horrific car accident and their many names for the color red�the color of life and death.

Among my favorite stories in the collection are �Good Enough� by Kelli Dunlap, about a relationship that goes wrong, a history of bad choices, and a serial killer who doesn�t fit the usual profile�it�s a nice twist on the Frankenstein tale; �Miz Ruthie Pays Her Respects� by Lucy A.

Not a bad thing, just a different style of poetry. The story reveals the intricate combination of monotony, bureaucracy, comradeship and violence that make up a soldier’s daily life at war. “In Redeployment, a soldier who has had to shoot dogs because they were eating human corpses must learn what it is like to return to domestic life in suburbia, surrounded by people “who have no idea where Fallujah is, where three members of your platoon died.” In “After Action Report”, a Lance Corporal seeks expiation for a killing he didn’t commit, in order that his best friend will be unburdened.” Something for the fans of of Flavia de Luce.
