The theme for Day # 9 of Short-Story Month is “Connected Short Stories.” Plenty of stories have the connection of the same setting or characters (I’ve written a few myself,) but these count more as series stories. Connecting them in a special way is not an easy trick.
‘Nathan Burgoine pulled this off excellently (and unexpectedly) in his collection “Of Echoes Born,” which links the previously published stories together. It all comes together at the end of the last story.
There you have it. Short, sweet and to the point. As befits a post about short stories.
