by look i have opinions
“The Simpson Frames,” by Antony Mann
Appeared in Crimewave 12: Hurts, 2013
About 7 pages in the magazine, so maybe 2600 words
I disagree with Michael Matheson’s assessment of this story. What comes after is a story we’ve all heard many times; the interesting part is right here, in the mentality of this awkward, nerdy, quietly hostile collector. The last line is a pleasure.
