Well I don't have time now, but here's my Amazon.com Short Short Story List, compromising some of my favorite collections by very good -- great even -- writers.

Looking at some of those titles, I see you have broad reading interests. Please share your thoughts on them as you finish reading. Posted by: ronn on August 2, 2003 08:40 PM
