Randall covers “The Bris” by Eileen Pollack http://timeenuf.blogspot.com/2014/12/the-bris-by-eileen-pollack.html
I read the Jerome Bixby short story, “It’s a Good Life” https://bibliophilica.wordpress.com/2014/12/21/its-a-good-life-by-jerome-bixby/
I should also mention that we’ve had another participant, Susan at Avid Series Reader, (who I’ve shared links to before on occasion but have not been good about looking for new updates since they were somewhat infrequent) who posts her reviews on Shelfari. Peeking at her website today, I see she’s updated her roster with links to all of her reviews for 2014. It’s at http://avidseriesreader.blogspot.com/2014/01/2014-deal-me-in-short-story-challenge.html if you’d like to take a look.
One more week to go. Thanks to everyone who has joined me in Deal Me In this year, whether for the whole year or for parts of the year. You’ve really helped make it a fun challenge for me.
