Giving short stories a second chance
Then I took a good look at the cover. I felt betrayed. It wasn't a story, it was many stories. Damn.
Lately, I have been following the trends in epublishing. New authors are putting out short stories for free as a sample. A wonderful idea, like having a taste of cheese before you buy it. It never occurred to me to troll for new authors in short story collections. Brilliant! I have so many new (to me) authors on my to-read list that I'm going to need a better way of sorting them.
So, I guess I'm giving short fiction a second chance.
