This is a great way to get introduced to new authors and get more from ones I know! They all sound like stories I could latch on to. Love it!
Patricia Barraclough says
I love anthologies. For adults it is often a matter of being able to fit in a quick read in a busy day. As a librarian, I saw it as a way to encourage reluctant readers. A long book may be a bit intimidating, but a shorter story format seems much more doable. It opens the door for them to try something a bit longer next time.
