Stories from Playboy magazine, 2010 issues

Note that while they sometimes publish very good genre stories, most of their fiction is non-genre.

List below is by my preference - best first; unread stories come at end. My rating (ABC: A = time well spent; C = don't bother) is in brackets. Unless mentioned otherwise, stories are from US edition of the magazine.
  1. January/February: Dennis Lehane's "Animal Rescue" (B); non-genre: A local tough is beginning to blackmail a rather nice man - give me money or I'll hurt your dog or girlfriend. So the victim has to act...

    This is actually a reprint from an anthology called "Boston Noir", edited by author himself.

    I don't recall having seen many double-issues of Playboy. They usually have monthly issues. This issue appears abnormal.
