Who wouldn't enjoy a short story ever once in a while

Anthologies have it all. Who wouldn't enjoy a short story ever once in a while?
9 October 2001 - Published on Amazon.com
Starlight 2 is another stunning collection of original short stories. Starlight 2 is a reminder that the short story form isn't dead, it isn't even sleeping. The worst story in the collection is good, the the best will leave you breathless. There is something about the order in which the stories are put that comprises a dramatic arc, though I can't analyze it. Nevertheless, unlike many anthologies, Starlight 2 is a cover-to-cover read, with resonances between the stories even though they are otherwise unlinked. That touch of artistry alone sets this anthology above most others.
