Mr. Cordair hits gold again with this latest short story. Without giving away any spoilers, let me just say this was a thought provoking story with a satisfying ending. Definitely well worth the time and a bargain at any price.

An interesting short story: start with a base of romance, stir in some mystery, season with ethical philosophy and add a dash of surprise. A tasty dish that is quick to devour but will leave a lingering aftertaste. Consume with wine for your reading pleasure.

This short story was not what I expected, but what a pleasant surprise! I don't want to give spoilers because I loved the twist and turns.

It's short, less than 30 minutes of reading time, but very thought-provoking. Well done!

Not even taking into account the clever dual meaning of the title, this short story raises fundamental, existential questions regarding man, survival, religion, and love.

The romantic dinner scene unexpectedly turns into a confessional....with a very enticing twist. Well worth the time to read.

A well-written and thought-provoking short story!
Never leave the house without a box of matches...and do not hesitate to use them...
Always carry a match. And snow chains. Got it.
