The 2017 Book Mine Set Short Story Online Anthology

Another 52 weeks, another 52 short stories found for free and online. The links below offer my thoughts on each story and embedded in each of those posts you'll find links to the stories themselves. Though I've ranked them from least to most favourite, few were the stories I didn't enjoy at all.  My number one pick might cause a few groans as people tend to turn on stuff that gets too popular as this one surely did. But a good story's a good story.
