Well and Truly Fracked

Last week, Ali Karim interviewed Jennifer Jordan, editor of the brassy recent short-story collection Expletive Deleted (formerly known by the unspeakable name Fuck Noir), for The Rap Sheet. Today, in January Magazine, Jim Winter takes a longer look at the anthology itself, concluding that
On the whole, Expletive Deleted is an uneven effort, though not through lack of risk-taking. The stories that didn’t work for me--and there were very few of those--at least showed an experimental bent. Whether they work or not is irrelevant. This volume’s opening salvo alone will hook a reader, leaving him or her wanting to know what happens next.

Or who fracks whom next, and how.
You’ll find Winter’s full assessment of the book here.
