“The promise implicit in an anthology is that it aspires to present something different, unexpected” ~ Joyce Carol Oates (Introduction to The Oxford Book of American Short Stories) From the classical form of 'The Weight of a Feather', first published by The Huffington Post (2013), to the suggestive allegory of 'The Leopard and The Lizard', this collection of short stories by South African author Judy Croome is an ideal mix of the familiar and the startling.
