Amber Berry I KNOW there are more anthologies than this! I'll have to search for the one I read in the mid-1990s, which I especially enjoyed.


message 2: by Amber (new)

Amber Berry Oh, wait. Short story collections, with all the stories by the SAME author? I think the list should be expanded to include anthologies.
