Deal Me In – Week 44 Wrap Up

20141103-070440.jpg

There are so few unread stories remaining in our DMI 2014 rosters that some of the “surprise” from the luck of the draw is fading. I mean, you know “it’s going to be one of these” and you wonder which one – as opposed to earlier in the year, when – if you’re like me – you’d already forgotten you’d even added some of the stories you drew. Please, someone, make me feel better and tell me I wasn’t the only one that happened to. 🙂

That’s what the DMI crew read this week. What short stories have you discovered lately? Some of us are already pondering what to put on our short story reading list for 2015 and may be willing to be guided…
