    "Interesting" Having read the preview and the descriptions, I think Ms. Ricketts has some interesting story ideas. The opening tale is centered on survivor's guilt, and the author does a nice job of conveying the swirling emotions of guilt and anxiety that haunt the unscathed survivors of a tragic accident. Several of the remaining tales have interesting premises, and the storylines seem amply suited for the type of emotion-based storytelling that Ms. Ricketts does well. The stories are in need of some polish, particularly in terms of a distracting lack of punctuation - run on sentences with no commas to separate clauses, etc. but these could be easily mended with a second edition release after a good copy edit. I look forward to seeing Ms. Ricketts' work continue to grow.
