at RA,

Speaking personally, I like short stories & have since I was a kid when I read a lot of SF & quickly realised that the short story was an ideal form for that particular genre. Anthologies such as HARDBOILED & THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF PULP FICTION, in particular, have given me much pleasure & have given me the realisation that these anthologies must be barely scratching the surface. I'd love to see an anthology series built around stories from MANHUNT, for example.

If folks are silly enough to pass this one up they can read the novel length version, SCORPION REEF, most recently published by M. Jakubowski's Blue Murder series from Xanadu.
