I wish I knew why so many people don't seem interested in short stories. You would think that, with our world getting busier and our attention spans getting more compact, short fiction would be the perfect form of reading entertainment. Yet most people tell me they still want a big, thick novel, despite barely having time to read.
Then again, an awful lot of people tell me they don't want to read an ebook because they "love the feel of a book in their hands." Nothing wrong with that sentiment, but often if I ask whether they've tried an ebook, it turns out they haven't.
So for those of you who enjoy reading short stories, this new collection of mine, Subway Dancer and Other Stories, is free in Kindle ebook format today, tomorrow and Wednesday. For those of you who don't, I have to ask: When's the last time you read a collection of stories? Maybe it's one of those changes worth trying. After all, at this price, you don't have much to lose.
