I'm not much of a fan of short fiction. Often I find that authors either don't know when to bring the story to a close, or, they end them too abruptly. But I do like to discover new authors through collections, and the series of city-based Noir tales published by Akashic (soon they might run out of cities; I doubt we'll see a Pelican Rapids Noir) can occasionally be a gold mine for finding new authors. How many I discover will affect my rating.
