I’ve read a bunch of stories lately, nearly completing my R.I.P. X “Peril of the Short story” list, a few more Robert Howard Conan tales (which I’ve generally been pleasantly surprised with) and, for Deal Me In, Steven Millhauser’s “A Voice in the Night” and Ben Winters’ excellent “Between the Lines” – sadly I haven’t had time to write many posts lately, as I’ve been in the clutches of an unrelated project that will finally be over on 11/8, after which I hope to get back to blogging more regularly. Maybe I can throw together a multi-story post soon to keep some sort of pulse going.🙂

That’s it for now. Until next time – happy reading!
