I love a good short story as it gives me an opportunity during the day to take a break a read an entire tale to conclusion. I have found some really great compilations of late and a few bad ones. This is one of the really good ones.


As entertaining as it can be to read fiction about ordinary people like you and me, where would we be without fairy tales and other stories about characters whose lives reflect a kind of “above and beyond” factor? Fascination, encouragement, and even enlightenment follow when we read about those, perhaps, whom we wish we could be, even for a short time.
