Format: Kindle Edition
One can almost see Zelazny sitting down to his computer, cracking his knuckles, and tapping this gem out with a crooked grin on his lips.

This was a great story, start to finish. Loaded with delicious Twilight Zone-irony. Short, sharp, wicked. One more in the plus column for Trent Zelazny.

This was a good story with an ironic feeling at the end that was more reminiscent of the Final Destination movies. It's also evidence that plans don't always occur the way that we plan them.

Ian and Delilah are married. Not a happy marriage though. And that's something that Ian plans on changing. While he believes that he has accomplished his goal, he quickly realizes that it has not truly been completed.

This is a quick read, something to satisfy that thrill. The situation is real and easy to imagine. And while the ending has a bit of the fantastic involved, it also fits the tone and mood of the story.

Cemetery Dance Publications has given us a number of fine stories during their 13 Days of Halloween Including Short of Breath by Trent Zelazny.

Ian Cain and his wife, Delilah, haven't been agreeing on much. This time it's about the Halloween party they've been invited to. Ian doesn't want to go and Delilah does.

Short of Breath is a fun tale, full of irony and a taste of karma.

Short of Breath was a part of the 13 Days of Halloween from Cemetery Dance and is still available from Amazon and BarnesandNobel.com.

Trent Zelazny's writing is awesome in this short story, just in time for Halloween! The characters seem so familiar and that to me is what makes the story really creepy. A great short story from a great writer.
