PEN O. Henry Award Stories 2012

For those that enjoy short stories, the latest O.Henry awards is particularly tasty. I'm about 3/4 through it but two stories are absolutely outstanding to me

A Birth in the Woods by Kevin Wilson
and
Forgivness by Yiyun Li

Forgivness is just simply magical!

Several others are very good. Only one real stinker so far IMO.

5/5 stars in my book

These Annual Anthologies are mostly available as e-books now which I've been waiting for, for many years.

I'll have to check out these anthologies. I've always loved O. Henry's short stories.

For some reason, "The Ransom of Red Chief" was my mother's favorite story.
