Quite the ride...
reviewed Cold Snap on
Another great collection of stories. I think he's at his best describing war and the military; his style of prose just fits the topic. His other stories are interesting but don't have the same power. His love of boxing is showcased in the last story of the book. I didn't enjoy it as much as the first three stories in, "The Pugilist at Rest," but those three stories are the gold-standard for how a short war story should be written. This is a very readable collection, and worth the time.
