All in the Cards - Rebecca Cohen For such a short story this one holds a lot of punch. I felt like it was a teaser for something bigger and according to the authors blog, it is.

Still I felt like there was actually a story. You know who these two characters are, a bit about their backgrounds and why they're getting together again. I didn't feel lost like I have with the other free Halloween shorts I've read from DSP and that's a good thing.

Not Halloween related (however I'm starting to think none of these are supposed to be :-/) but I enjoyed it very much nevertheless. The world was very interesting so I'm looking forward to reading a full story about them.
