Not all are short more like a speed bump
I bought this because I wanted to read the Kelly Gay short and all I got was what equates to a fly leaf intro and doesn't even qualify for a short story. But don't worry there are plenty more just like it. This should be called mini short stories and some short stories in between.
Thankfully, the authors who actually wrote an actual short story are really good and helps you make it through the briefness of all the other mini shorts.
