This is a novella, “Speaking of Greed,” written as the foundation of an anthology with the same title. That has been its only appearance.

It’s a return to a very old-fashioned type of storytelling, with four archetypal characters interrupting their endless bridge game to recount stories from their own experience. Boccaccio, Chaucer—the form has a long history, and I had great fun with my attempt at it.
