On "Orphans of God" by Morgan Smith (6148 words) ***

Morgan's Smith's story isn't the deserted orphan of a writer who's given up. This story is a great example of a piece of good, slick fiction--a plot that grinds its way from start to end, picking up pace as you drive toward the end the way a glacier picks up all the stones in its wake. It's the story of a public defender who wants to win at any cost. It's the story of a man who works the rodeo. The piece rocks between these two plots, reminding us that law isn't too much like riding a bull, and that sometimes you can get the girl but only for the weekend. Read there story here at Wazee Journal.
