    This could just as easily been called "Mary Makes a Movie" or "Dead Girls Do Tell Tales."I have to admit, I'm being all smug and giggly with myself. I don't usually read the short stories over on Tor, though I've enjoyed the few I've perused. Angela Slatter shared this author's "Hey, I made a story!" tweet today and I figured I'd click to read. Now I'm here being all "Tee hee hee!" having gotten to this one before my friends. Ok, before karen. When she gets to this story, she'll be all, "Wait, h [...]

    Excerpts from a Film (1942-1987) is a short story from one of my favorite wordsmiths A.C. Wise.It’s a lovely but disturbing, real and yet metaphorical tale of old Hollywood, when young girls flocked to town with dreams of stardom and immortality. There is Mary, a young woman destined to be a star but haunted by the ghosts of so many murdered women. Is there a serial killer? Is it the sleazy producer George, haunted and obsessed by Mary? A.C. Wise manages to blow me away yet again with her beau [...]

    Excerpts from a Film by A.C. Wise5 stars"That moment right there was when I knew. Even if I didn’t understand it fully at the time, the knowledge was burned right onto my soul. That’s what happens to girls. If you don’t fight back, if you don’t run away, someone bigger and stronger will chew you up and just walk away. They’ll leave you crumpled on the ground like so much trash, and the world will never know you existed at all."Wow. That's all I can say about this Tor novella. The story [...]

    This shockingly good short story can be found here:tor/2017/03/21/excerptVery good, and highly recommended!!

    I tried to like this one more, but I couldn't. While the descriptions and writing was truly beautiful, so imaginative and real, the story was a bit pretentious, in my opinion, and so I couldn't connect with it like I had imagined I would.This was called "disturbing" but I didn't really think that about it myself. I'm used to "horror" by now and this just didn't cut it for me. I hope Wise keeps writing though, because they have a real knack for it!

    Loved it! Another great Tor short. In the end, I did want more. But that's what all the great starlets were taught to leave us wanting

    I'm beginning to think the short fiction available free from Tor is better than a lot of the full-scale books I've paid to read. Consistently strong quality.This is lovely in a very dark way, paying homage to the golden era of Hollywood by memorializing all the young girls, dreamers, wannabes and starlets who faced death, real or metaphorical, to attain the ultimate in fleeting immortality: stardom. I enjoyed the non-fictional ghost of Elizabeth Short, the infamous Black Dahlia. This was a multi [...]

    Hollywood is full of ghosts, many of those are the ghosts of young women who were looking for their big break. This story posits that their ghosts haunt films so loosely based on the short dramatic lives and deaths of these women. Clever and rereadable. Enjoy.

    This is the story of a young woman that escape an abusive home and who like many others, goes to Hollywood to become a star. On her way to success she is (literally) haunted by the murders of several other aspiring actresses. This is her story, and the story of her influence, rippling up through the years, on the man who discovered her.

    Her body splayed in a cold alleyway, arranged as though death was a beautiful thing. Her throat opened like a bloody smile beneath lips painted jet and ash. The curves of her still a buffet; her body an invitation for appetites of another kind. A cautionary tale and an object lesson—this is how we break our girls and make them tame. This is how we keep them fresh and young. This is what happens when you run awayree and a half for this onereview to comead it for yourself here:tor/2017/03/21/exc [...]

    Excerpts from a Film is a haunting and lyrical story about violence against women, ghosts, and old Hollywood. It demands that readers sit up and notice the young women eaten up by the sparkling city and allure of fame. The narrative is confused, women shifting, nameless, or with too many names. But the disorientation helps make Wise's point and drive home the goal of Mary/Eva/Lillian Once you see, you cannot forget these lost women
