Within the covers of this book, you will find magic, high technology, and things that go bump in the night. You’ll meet aliens, vampires, and even a pink flamingo. What you won’t find are long stories. Why? Because we all have lots to do every day and often reading has to take a back seat to work, home, and family obligations. These stories are short; no story is longer than 2,000 words. You can read one while you are waiting for the bus or while you are waiting for the microwave.
