Do you like the short story genre? I love it - the fact that a writer can take just one simple happening and turn it into a short story. If it works it is often brilliant.
So here's a book of Short Stories to curl up with by the fire in the cold weather, if you can lay your hands on it. It is by Salley Vickers (the best selling author of Miss Garnet's Angel) and is called 'Aphrodite's Hat'. I am off to curl up with it by the woodburner right now. I have already got more than half way through and I am enjoying every word - and envious of anyone who can write so well. Incidentally 'Miss Garnet's Angel is also a jolly good read.
