I like short stories as it gives you a chance to sample the author and their ideas without commiting yourself to a full length novel. I imagine this author is using his stories as a jumping off point for future stories and characters. I would truly be intetested in sering some of his stuff come to life. The ladt story in particular wpuld be an excellant YA series.
Some are ridiculously short and make no sense and some are very very entertaining
Good story ideas but not fleshed out.
Very good stories here. Particulary the chess story. Quite creative and entertaining. Hope to see more short stories soon! Only thing that bugs me is... who won? The dragon or the wizard !!!
