Deal Me in Challenge 2018 – My Sign-Up

DealMeIn2018

I’m looking forward to joining this challenge in 2018 to help motivate me through some anthologies and pulps that have been on the shelf or the iPad way too long. Many of these lean more toward the novella than the true short story, but so it goes. Now I just have to wait patiently for some of the cards to come up. Here’s my plan:

  1. Great list! Lot of variety there. I’ve only read the Bradbury stories and Conan Doyle, though some of the other authors are at least familiar to me. Happy reading!
