  1. Thanks for the mention, Col - much appreciated! And I don't blame you one bit for the focus on PDB's work. He writes a good story, and I really like his flash fiction. Glad you had a good short story reading month.

    1. Margot, you're welcome. I'm always happy to read one of yours!

  2. I try hard not to be envious of how much you read each month, both short stories and novels. (But I am not successful.) And you watch a lot of TV shows and movies too!

    It looks like I have a few collections of Paul D. Brazill stories on the Kindle. I should check them out.

    1. Tracy, thanks.

      I hope you like Paul's work when you get to it.
