This was a good one. I was not expecting the conclusion that was written, as I was really wondering what was messing with Harry. The twist in the conclusion made me smile.

I enjoyed this short collection. Some of the stories flowed poetically for me. My favorite was "The Truth" and I could envision it becoming a full length story on its own. Good job, Shannon. I look forward to more.
