Update and great news!


The reading of stories from the BASS 1978 is going well. Overall story quality after first readings – average. No real standouts.
I have been plagued by the Olympics bug, and that has kept me from making entries and reviews of the stories.

They will be up shortly!


The other problem is the constant appearance of new books in my hands.


It really is a mystery.

I have this bad habit of shifting from book to book.


My birthday was last week, and I was able to make a significant purchase.

The following years are now in transit and should be arriving soon!


The Best American Short Stories 1983

The Best American Short Stories 1984

The Best American Short Stories 1986

The Best American Short Stories 1987

The Best American Short Stories 1996

The Best American Short Stories 1997

The Best American Short Stories 1998


All of these titles for a whopping 25 bucks! I’m ready to add them to my shelf.


But, on a sad note, I had the remaining books to fill out my entire collection in my Amazon shopping cart, and financial obligations forced me to shift them out and place them into a holding pattern for now. I was bummed...but we gotta eat!
