8 X 10

8 X 10 - Michael  Turner A collection of snippets, some stories, some just descriptions without evident story arc. Some characters vaguely echoed in other bits. Sort of a precise impressionism.
Very good. The second last one had a more conventional arc, with a satisfying ending. Probably even more satisfying because so rare. Most never arrived at the ending by the time they finished.
