On "L.A. Doll" by Gregory Hahn (3070 words) ****

This story does a great job of playing with techniques that put it very much in line with the setting--Los Angeles. It features a "montage," after all, one that works fairly well. Sure, the story goes for many of the L.A. cliches--the superficiality, the concern with celebrity--but I think that's the point. The narrator has moved to Los Angeles to be a part of this scene. Read the story here.
