This is another part of the story. I have liked reading these stories. Howie Randolph is a super writer, I hope he writes more to this story.
The only reason the stroke amount is an 8 is because this is not a true stroke story, and it was not intended to be.
Story plot is first rate, and thus recieved a perfect 10. The overall appeal to the reviewer is a strong 10. I would encourage everyone to read these stories, in order.
