“Jeffery Hess reminds of the honour days or noir: wayward girls, brawling sailors, and shadow-lurking heroes who have been too hung over while redemption dawned. if you would like a brief literary jab in your center, any of Hess’s brief fiction will do. simply end burying that physique, good friend, and read.” —James R.
