This is a very readable collection of short stories by Dickson . I am not a fan of short stories but most of these were at least , unlike some of his other collections, upbeat,even whimsical. I much prefer that to the ones that,even though they are short,leave me depressed for days. I would give this a 3.5 if I could.
