Worlds Without End Roll-Your-Own Reading Challenge

Collections!

Collections!

For some reason, most of us are mainly novel readers. I have every intention to read this or that short story collection I hear about, but I keep pushing them back to the "oh yeah, one day I'll read them, absolutely, no doubt"-land.

This challenge should bring that "one day" a bit closer, but not too quickly--there's time until the end of 2017.

Anybody with similar issues is welcome to join me!

Only collections by the same author are eligible, so no anthologies, and no separate short stories or novellas (they already have their own challenges), but rereads are okay.

Don't worry about the reviews: just tell us what your favourite story (or three) was in the collection!
