Short Story Saturdays!

30 January 2010 Jackie 3

This will be the last Short Story Saturday post at Literary Escapism until March. Alpha Heroes is taking over hosting duties for February, so make sure head over there next week for the next edition.

Back to Short Story Saturday, the idea is very easy…did you recently review a short story or anthology? Then share it. I recently read Kelley Armstrong’s Kat, which can be found in the The Eternal Kiss anthology, edited by Trisha Telep, but what is everyone else reading?
