I've just finished what I thought was a brilliant short story collection, In Exile by Billy O'Callahan. I've read a few other collections in recent months, some by single authors and others by a multitude and really find they are often better than most novels. I wonder why they haven't caught on like novels as they are easier to fit into busy schedules people have nowadays and are just as entertaining and thoughtful as novels. Any views on this? And while I'm here, any collections people have read that they would recommend?
