I was surprised at how many of these stories were just too sad to bear! I can handle the occasional downer, but it felt like one story after another just made me want to sob. I have not tended to be much of a short story reader, always wanting the story to go further, but I didn't have that feeling about any of these stories. It was more like I was hoping they'd end soon, before any new disaster happened!

Award-winning short stories from 1996! Really good stories from some really great writers including Stephen King, Joyce Carol Oates, etc..
