Our Talons Can Crush Galaxies, by Brooke Bolander
So now that I have read my second Brooke Bolander story, I think I am typecasting her--she personifies Angry Woman. Nothing especially wrong or right with that, it would be better if the stories didn't rely so much on obscenities to generate interest. Our Talons Can Crush Galaxies is a hint at a story, as most short stories are, and its anger is directed at an entitled male serial killer. No sympathy there. But pretty easy as a target. Red Meat For The Base, as they say in politics. Though it isn't political. It took much longer to write this than to read the story--so it goes. 2 stars.
