Darlene Marshall, author

I write award-winning historical romance about pirates, privateers, smugglers and the occasional possum.

Down These Strange Streets - Simon R. Green, Diana Gabaldon, S.M. Stirling, Laurie R. King, Carrie Vaughn, Gardner R. Dozois, Joe R. Lansdale, Glen Cook, Charlaine Harris, John Maddox Roberts, Melinda M. Snodgrass, Lisa Tuttle, Steven Saylor, Bradley Denton, Conn Iggulden, M.L.N. Hanover, George R.R Martin and Dozois are hitting the mark with these short story collections. I've been away from regularly reading short stories for a while, and this collection reminded my of why I enjoy the form so much. It takes a skilled author to write small, and these authors are all pros at their craft. Plus, I was exposed to some authors who were new to me, and that's always a plus.
