I have recently realized I do like short stories thanks to Levar Burton reads. Levar read the saddest story and thank god they are not all sad, these stories are great. A weird mixture of fiction, fantasy and sci fi. The story about every species writing books has stuck with me in its oddness and yet it makes sense.
