Sliver of quiver

There are 25 stories included and I enjoyed 2 of them. Given how specifically freakish they all are, I can't imagine anyone enjoying more than 4 of them on the outside. If that's a high enough percentage for you or if you're just curious, then you might want to give this a listen. If you're looking for 8 hours of listening pleasure - I don't like your chances of being pleased with this selection.
