Sporty Spec arrived!
Actually, it arrived right before Thanksgiving, but I wanted to wait at least until I'd read a few of the stories. This is the first time I'm in a publication where I've had interactions (here and elsewhere) with a number of the other contributors--I've had a couple of times where I'd met online one or two others, but this time the number is a half a dozen or so. So I made sure I read all those stories, and I enjoyed them all. Only negative to the anthology is that Lulu goes way overboard with the packaging for the book. How many extra trees must we cut down in addition to those needed for the book itself? But that has no bearing on the quality of the stories and poems, which so far have been very high.
I'll say it again, this is a very fun anthology with lots of short pieces that should appeal to many people. Add it to your Christmas list!
