    "OLD FAVORITES"

    The Magi is an old familiar fable I've heard many times in one form or another . The Last Leaf is new to me. I enjoyed both shorts; each with its own unique characters , storyline and outcome. I now will be searching for more O. Henry material. As usual, B. J. Harrison does an excellent job of narrative.

    "Great short stories"

    These were my first pieces by O Henry and I enjoyed them both. Good narrator.
