The Cannibals of Madison County - William Doonan

This is the story of two cannibals whose paths cross in Madison County.

Okay, this short story is a great example of why I hate short stories. While it had its share of fun moments, it was a teeny tiny niblet of a story and was finished before it had time to get going. Too many interesting things were glossed over.

What little there was was fun but there wasn't nearly enough meat to it. If it had been twice as long and been fleshed out a bit more, I would have easily given it a three or four. You have to love a woman who keeps a blowgun in her glove compartment.

Still, the title was good and it's free on the Kindle today.
