Synopsis: This story is set in an alternate New Orleans filled with labor zombies. Two con-men Darger and Surplus and the eponymous heroine head out to play the „black money“ scam.
Review: Swanwick won several Hugo and Nebula awards for his SF&F stories. Despite the zombies the story’s tone is light-hearted and humorous. World-building is excellent. I love Swanwick’s narrative style! Only the end is somewhat predictable. The story makes you wish for more of Darger and Surplus – you’ll learn more about his anthology „The Dog said Bow-Wow“ in my review.
