    "Great Short Stories could be Greater"

    These stories are interesting, but it is hard to believe that stories with more interest could not have been found. The readers are also rather dull--mostly flat voices. I like having multiple readers, but in this case, it was deceptive. The readers are different, but their nondramatic method is basically the same.
