I enjoyed this short story very much. Great use of darkness and sinisterism (NY's skyline at night, dark suit, dark sky). . . I can only WAIT to see what is going to happen as I am led through the dark labryinth and twists and turns of the story.
Greed, another favorite that goes deliciously with darkness and sinisterism. Wall Street is perfect as the setting, as is the 57th floor of the posh office building. . . you can feel the green oozing out of the characters' pores.
And let's not forget the pick-pocket whose attempt is foiled by a character that seems to embody the devil himself. Imagine that, the devil thwarting a pick pocket; that's irony.
The ending is fitting and scrumptuos . . . very greedy corporate officers setting up the devil himself! Fifteen years seems TOO LIGHT!
Witty, clever and delectable!

A review of Out of the Badlands (3rd Draft)by email@example.com on 06/08/2011This was pretty damned funny to me. Your sense of humor stood out. And, somehow, you injected a cute little love story. A cute spin on what should be made into a movie, or a television series. The characters are there. Now, I could have done without all the religion, with Solomon and all, but maybe because you know the Bible so well, you threw it in. There were definitely... read
A review of Dr. Towers' Babel (rev)by firstname.lastname@example.org on 05/01/2011First, I liked your use of the word "twixt". Imaginative, a trip, a journey . . . imaginative. I didn't mind the length at all. I enjoy reading and going to the places the author invites me to visit . . . journey. Mind expanding. Mmmmmmmmmm .. . . . Thought provoking in a delicious sort of way . . . not forced . . . I wanted to take the trip . . . adventure out. I... read
