Cullen Gallagher (PULP SERENADE, May 2, 2009) reviews this posthumous collection of stories by Fredric Brown:
. . . I was struck with this realization: Yes, Fredric Brown does believe in justice—but what an unsettling, discomforting sense of justice. The old adage is that the punishment should fit the crime, but in Brown's paradoxical world, the punishment always fits the criminal. A slight difference in rhetoric, but astronomical when put into practice.More about Brown is here.
