Firebug is a glimpse at a bigger story. It does have a beginning, middle and end, but leaves a lot of unanswered questions. I wasn't 100% sure where the story was going when I started reading, an old guy moaning about progress, the loss of the woods around his property and such. But it quickly escalated and took a rather bizarre turn. I must admit, the twist in the tail end really is what secured this short story it's 3 stars. It was over so quickly, but rather juicy, in a horrific sense. The writing style is simple, with the exception of the drawl-like speech of the old man. It should be easily accessible to most readers. An interesting tale and very quick read.
