As a moderately prolific short story writer who also reads a fair few, both by choice, and because my arm has been (oh so very gently!) twisted, you might think this personal anthology would be a simple thing for me to compile. A doddle. It was not.
Just listened to “Scrimshaw” -- twice -- on BBC. (and I got to tell you, I typically avoid listening to recorded stories; I’m more of a visual guy)Loved it, especially the word play, as you note. I’ll be looking up her collection asap. Thanks much for posting!
