    "all of the selected shorts series are the best"

    All of the Selected Shorts packages on Audible are the best. Perfect semi-serious stories to intermingle with the longer works you listen to. And a nice package of podcast-like pieces all collected to together into a single place. I recommend that you download them all, if you have the credits available, and listen to them when you are tired of whatever else you have on your MP3 player. Highly recommended.
