    1. This was an interesting short story collection which I just happened to have on my Kindle and filled the last spot in a challenge. The stories were all winners of the Almond Press Short Story Contest held in 2012 and each author selected had written a story about a "fall". Obviously there were many different interpretations of the subject--the actual season of fall, a physical fall, falling in love, etc. I enjoyed all of the stories although some were a little more difficult for me to interpret. [...]

    2. I gave it three stars because I thought the writing was pretty good. I just didn't like most of the stories, which is probably not the authors' fault. Too many depressing stories, cross dressing and homosexuality (which in themselves are not a problem, but in these stories they were kind of grim), and I found it a chore to keep reading such downers. I couldn't recommend this book to anyone I know, which is why I would give the subject matter one or two stars.

    3. There were some great short stories in here. Not all were winners, but the fabulousness of some of them made up for others.
