Katherine at The Writerly Reader read and posted about Nikolai Leskov’s “The Steel Flea” https://katenread.wordpress.com/2015/06/20/deal-me-in-week-25-the-steel-flea/ and there is a link to a card trick video for her eight of hearts.🙂

I read Kyle Minor’s “The Truth and all Its Ugly” https://bibliophilica.wordpress.com/2015/06/19/the-truth-and-all-its-ugly-by-kyle-minor/

“o” at Behold the Stars stretched the DMI rules (which, paradoxically, is permitted and even encouraged by the DMI rules) and ’went back for more’ when Prosper Merimee’s short story “The Storming of the Redoubt” left her still hungry so also read the author’s “Colomba.” Read her post here http://beholdthestars.blogspot.co.uk/2015/06/the-storming-of-redoubt-and-colomba-by.html

Tracy at Bitter Tea and Mystery read Sara Paretsky’s story “Freud at Thirty Paces” http://bitterteaandmystery.blogspot.co.uk/2015/06/freud-at-thirty-paces-by-sara-paretsky.html

Have you ever heard of bibliotherapy? I hadn’t and found this article in the New Yorker interesting: http://www.newyorker.com/culture/cultural-comment/can-reading-make-you-happier?intcid=mod-most-popular

Can you identify the author below, who is featured this week by one of our participants? (hint: it’s not Sara Paretsky)
