Happiness is a Warm Gun
Rio Adopts a Puppy & Ladies’ Day Out
By S L Huang
“A Neurological Study on the Effects of Canine Appeal on Psychopathy, or Rio Adopts a Puppy” and “An Examination of Collegial Dynamics as Expressed Through Marksmanship, or Ladies’ Day Out” are stories set in the universe of S. L. Huang’s Cas Russell novels.
This is a world in which semi-plausible superpowers exist. Superheroes? Supervillains? This world is grey rather than white and black. Neither Cas Russell nor her mentor Rio are heroic. “Terrifying monsters” may be closer to the mark.
