Short of Breath: A Halloween Short Story by Trent Zelazny

This is a short story available through Cemetary Dance.

Ian Cain suspects his wife has had an affair.  When he kills her, he thinks she's brought this on herself.  He covers up his tracks by pretending to have stayed at work, and later to go to the Halloween party she wanted to attend.  But irony strikes.

Zelazny does a good job teasing and milking the irony, slowly, drop by drop.
