I do not like them, Sam I am.
Short stories, that is. With few exceptions - most notably Ernest Hemingway's "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber" and Guy De Maupassant's "The Necklace" - I tend to avoid them like the plague.
Well, okay, that worked until 2014, when I ran across FaceOff - a com...

I only read two of the short stories in this book...the one co-wrote by Diana Gabaldon and featuring Outlander characters and the Karin Slaughter one featuring Jeffrey Tolliver in 1993. And all I can say was that both were so clever and fun. I wasn't familiar with the authors they wrote with, or...
