Edgar Allan Poe favored the short story ... and we love them too. "The ordinary novel is objectionable, from its length," Poe declared. "As it cannot be read at one sitting, it deprives itself, of course, of the immense force derivable from totality." Here we have collected 10 of our favorite short stories by AAeB authors - brief a touch saucy, offering insights into the human heart, always well told. Editorial director Hollis George calls this anthology," An entertaining blend of storytelling selected by short story aficionado Edward Squires."

About the Author
William R. Burkett, Jr. is an acclaimed sci-fi writer, listed in the Science Fiction Encyclopedia. But his "straight" writing is finding him a new audience. A product of Georgia and Florida, he led a quixotic career in journalism and public relations before turning his attention back to serious writing. He's had more than a dozen novels and short story collections published. He now lives in the Pacific Northwest where the fishing and duck hunting are good.
