Surprise! I love short stories. Yup. And I have a short story display case at work which I refresh every week, putting in my favourites, trying to make it enticing and irresistible. A woman came into the shop and asked where the short stories were, so I was yay and delighted, and showed her “my” selection, and then showed her the shelves where other anthologies are and so on. And I couldn’t resist asking if she was a short story buff as she ended up buying six or seven books. And she said no, she wasn’t, didn’t read them, didn’t know anything about them, but she has to teach the subject at Uni this term.
