    If done rights, chapter breaks enhance the book by giving you a good place to pause to reflect or to put the book down for the night. Chapter headings may be archaic but they can still be effective, as demonstrated by The Dain Curse. I also like what Ken Bruen has done with quotations at the top of each chapter. A good example of a recent HCC reprint that does chapter breaks well is Zero Cool by John Lange.


    Not to mention Ian Fleming's ironic and sarcastic chapter titles. I'll bet he spent as much time thinking up those chapter titles as he did on his stories.
