On "The ABCs of Murder" by Mercedes M. Yardley (2908 words) ***

I like when a story takes an old theme and manages to make something different out of that theme by turning the concept into something concrete, something literal. Yardley's piece does just that, and is particularly compelling toward the beginning as we get a feel for what's actually happening. Grief, murder, ghosts, and memory--they all find a place here at On the Premises.
