Loved this book. I took it out to read the story that was the basis for 'Field of Dreams'. I don't usually like short stories, but I enjoyed these. And, I even took out another short-story book since finishing this one.

SPOILER-type talk:
I tend to not like short stories because I don't like getting involved in characters and plot only for it to end abruptly. Also, short stories, in my experience, tend to be darker and the ones I have read don't usually end on a happy note.

The stories here a shade dark and had abrupt, ambiguous, and/or depressing endings. Were intriguing. I got involved with the plots and characters only for the stories to end all of a sudden. However, I still weirdly like them. Maybe it's because I am now just past the half-way mark for the average Canadian lifespan.
