To be Continued


(From Library Journal) Short stories are usually resolved in a few pages, but the editors of this anthology set out to do something new and contradictory with the form: have established writers create stories that leave readers on the edge of their seats--until the next volume comes out. Some writers manage to pull off both a complete narrative and a dangling tidbit. Lucy Jane Bledsoe describes three weddings in the life of a lesbian--none of them her own. Jess Wells's "To the Flames" takes us back to the mass burnings of witches in medieval Europe. Elisabeth Nonas's "Shadow Line" provides a tantalizing glimpse into the life and work of a shrink-to-the-stars who volunteers at a Hollywood AIDS clinic. The premise is intriguing, but the question remains whether readers will be able to sustain interest over the year or so till the publication of Volume 2.--Ina Rimpau, Newark P.L., NJ
