Getting the Thuglit compilations on the Kindle is truly an outstanding value. How many years do you have to go back to pinpoint when magazines cost just $0.99? Much credit to the editors for selecting such a good array of stories and putting them in a very effective sequence. Ed Kurtz gets things off to a highly unsettling start, and I didn't find that the collection put a foot wrong after that -- though I thought the three that wrapped it up (by Justin Porter, Edward Hagelstein, and Chris Mattix) were especially potent and memorable. Porter's poignant yet chilling tale reminded me of Nelson Algren's "The Man with the Golden Arm."

Of all the places to get good, shot-to-the-gut crime fiction, Thuglit stands out as one of the best. This collection is hard-hitting, well-written, and just a joy to read while smoking a cigarette. Everything in this issue is good but the story that stands out the most to me is Chris Mattix's "Jerry's Dead Wife." There's just something about greasy spoon diners that make them one of my favorite locales for natural dialogue. Thuglit Issue 5 is a must have.
