2008 Books #2: The Winds of Marble Arch, by Connie Willis

This hefty story collection is going onto my Recommended Reading List. The stories ranged from humor through darkness, and I'm going to say that although I like her Bellwether-style funnies, I love her more serious stuff.

I'm going to list the stories I particularly loved, because I can:

- "A Letter from the Clearys"
- "Fire Watch"
- "All My Darling Daughters"
- "Samaritan"
- "Cash Crop"
- "Jack"
- "Service for the Burial of the Dead"
- "Chance"

Those are the ones I'll plan to study, to see how they work, and I encourage everyone to read them!

What time is it? Meme time!
