Short story: “The Drawstring Detective”

“The Drawstring Detective,” by Nik Houser
Appeared in Lightspeed Magazine, December 2014
There are one or two distracting touches of cheesiness in this story (do we really need so many reasons to hate Brad?), but it has the charm and sense of fun that keep me reading speculative fiction. The audio reading is really good.
