Bibliophilopolis is hosting the Short Stories, Deal Me In Challenge in which you assign short stories to cards in a deck, draw one per week, read, and enjoy.  I had a couple of anthologies (plus some short reads on my Kindle) that were perfect for this, so I quickly made up my "deck" and am ready to go.

  1. I feel like I should give you some kind of prize, since I think you're the first participant so far whose list contains neither a story or even an author I'm familiar with. :-) But that's good. If you post about any of them I will learn something new. Good luck with the challenge!
