Five Thrillers: 04/04/08

Each of the five stories is a different chapter in Joe's life (or lives if you want to believe Joe's stories). They are:
Each of these thrillers is about ten pages long and reads like your typical technology driven adventure story with a lone hero at the helm: think books by Clive Cussler and Tom Clancy.

Reed hit on many of my favorite story elements in "Five Thrillers." To put it simply, I loved this story. I would love to see Joe Carroway's adventures (even though they come to a tragic end) expanded from novella to novel.
