There’s something about a well written short story that charms the reader. Perhaps it is the ability to connect threads in the span of a smaller word limit, or the chance to devour a story quickly. I love reading them, and I love writing them. To connect short stories across a book, and keep the reader guessing what the next story holds, that was an interesting concept. I did not expect to get short stories connected to each other when I took up “Among the Stars” for reading. The beginning of the collection, and the common thread between the stories, made me nostalgic.
