Jan. 20: Beginning in November, I began reading a lot of short story collections (single-author) and themed anthologies. This was a major new path for me, because in adolescence I decided to read novels, as they are longer-lasting, giving me more time with the characters and plot. {smile} But in November I took up short fiction as well (primarily Lovecraft, Lovecraft Mythos, and other horror, but including literary fiction and so forth).
