I've been a bad blogger. Below is the list of short story recommendations that Dave W. gave me a few weeks ago. I promised to post them, and I fully admit I took way too long to do so. My apologies are offered to Dave, and my excuses are on my blog. Without further adieu I give you
"Why Don't You Dance?"
"The Sorrows of Gin"
"A Miscellany of Characters Who Will Not Appear"
"Speaking of Courage" from "The Things They Carried"
Enjoy! (Or, given that they're tragic stories, writhe in misery!)
