Six short stories, each one from my favorite genre: science fiction, mystery thrillers, humor and horror. I am pleased to share my collection of my best shorts for the year 2014. For the past 36 months these stories exceeded 5000 downloads. This is an opportunity to put all of them on your reader for one download.
The Stop, The Commitment, To find a Thief, Sniper POV, Bottoms Up, and Critique Circle are my all-time favorites.
I hope you enjoy them.
