On "Seven Reasons Jerome Likes Sizzler" by Tom Lavagnino (1538 words) ****

I know a story is pretty good when I can remember parts of it days later and also remember that I enjoyed reading it. What makes this one memorable, as with many others, is a gimmick--a sort of list answering the point made in the title. But a plot emerges, and by the time the story is done, I'm not quite sure what's going to happen, but it doesn't sound good. Read the story here.
