Short Stories

I enjoy listening to short stories when out for a walk or commuting to work. Selected Shorts is one of my favorite sources for stories. You can get their podcasts for free at the iTunes store or from a number of public radio stations that carry the program. Here is a story I quite enjoyed from a recent podcast. It is "The Toys of Peace" by Saki or Hector Hugh Munro if you prefer.

A Book For You

The winner is Bailey

I've read it, and enjoyed it. Would you like it? The book is The View From Castle Rock by Alice Munro

Alice Munro is one of the best writers of short stories in the world, and this collection is exceptional. There is a short review of the book on John Baker's blog check it out.

I'll take all requests for the book left in the comments during the next 24 hours, or so, and then use a random number generator to determine the winner. I'll then ship the book at my expense to the winner. The offer is limited to residents of North America. My apologies to my good friends in other countries but the cost of shipping is simply too high.

Note: The offer is open only to currently registered commenters others are welcome to register for future giveaways but will not be eligible for this one. Please make it clear if you want to be considered for the book or are just commenting.
