Continuing with short story reading for February, there are less because of the novel I read and also I’ve been otherwise busy. Next time will be the wrap-up.
I finished the Raffles story in Deep Waters, Mysteries on the Waves, edited by Martin Edwards, British Library Crime Classics and then set it aside for a bit while I read other things. I’ll get back to it later.
From Lost Lore: A Fantasy Anthology edited by Mark Lawrence. New (2017) original stories. Terrible Ten Press, Kindle Edition. I read just two more,

“Paternus: Deluge” © 2017 by Dyrk Ashton
At which point I quit the anthology because I had read three stories in a row which I didn’t like, one that I really didn’t like, and I didn’t feel like continuing in hopes of another good one. I know that happens sometimes in anthologies like this, but there are too many good stories out there to bother with this. There is a second anthology by the same editor, which I will likely skip. So I can’t recommend this one.
From The Great Merlini: The Complete Stories of the Magician Detective by Clayton Rawson. I bought this ebook on the recommendation of Jeff Meyerson and I’m enjoying the stories a lot.
” The Clue of the Tatooed Man”
“The Clue of the Broken Legs”
“The Clue of the Missing Motive”
” From Another World”
“Off the Face of the Earth”
“Merlini and the Lie Detector”
“Merlini and the Vanished Diamonds”
“Merlini and the Sound Effects Murder”
“Nothing is Impossible”
I’ll be reading the last four of these in the next week.
From Michael J. Sullivan:
“Pile of Bones, A Legends story” This was a freebie with the Kickstarter for the final book in the series.
Next week will be the wrap-up for Short Story February. How is your short story reading for the month coming along?
