Elizabeth Bear’s “Overkill” is live over at Shadow Unit. “Overkill” is the seventh and penultimate episode in the first season of Shadow Unit.
Act I opens with one of the grislier crime scenes we are likely to read about. Nasty, just nasty. But like a crime scene or an accident, we can’t look away and Bear is too damn good at telling the story to even want to. Just don’t eat anything before starting up.
Despite the overwhelming grisliness of the opening, reading a new Shadow Unit story is a delight to savored.
