book review: low moon

I guess I went on a bit of a Jason kick there, but here’s my last review for a while. Low Moon is a collection of short stories, including one about a cowboy town where the sheriff and bad guy duel using chess (and the sheriff never wakes up without a bucket of water tossed on him). There’s also a very neat parallel story called & which has the tales of two men on facing pages but in vastly different timescales, only to end up enmeshed. I wasn’t such a fan of the Prehistoric Film Noir story becuase it seemed to rely too much on its ending, which was kind of meh. But all in all, I’m not going to complain too much because this kind of deadpan near-silent comic humour is hard to find anywhere but Jason’s mind (and pen it gets connected to).
