Reading short stories

January 2018 trade paper

Between novels, I worked these in from The Thinking Machine: Fifty Novelettes & Short Stories by Jacques Futrelle. If this looks familiar, yes, I’ve been working my way through this for months, a few at a time.

This time:

”Problem of the Cross Mark”

”The Jackdaw”

”Problem of the Crystal Gazer”

”Problem of the Deserted House”

”Problem of the Ghost Woman”

    Any of them outstanding?

    That’s because there are a …ahem… lot of stories. Now came up to “The Problem of Cell 13” but there were other good ones.

    As far as I know I have not read any stories by Futrelle. I suppose I should find an inexpensive kindle edition and sample the stories.

    I saw your comment at Patti’s about high temperatures today and tomorrow. Hope the visit to the doctor goes well in all respects.

    I have this book but find it hard to hold because of its size. I have to read it at a table which isn’t the most comfortable situation. I may switch to the ebook version so I can read it on my iPad.
