    Julie to win. Gone bad is one of the best collections I’ve ever come across.

    Very Impressive list and of the ones I’ve read I’d be partial to Frank Bill’s “CISI”. However, Alan Heathcock & Daniel Woodrell’s collections are top notch as well. Volt was very impressive.

    Delighted to see Iain Rowan’s Nowhere to Go on the list!
