The First Rule Of Short Story Club (2) Is You Have To Read The Stories

Autumn is here. Summer is a fading memory. It must be Short Story Club time. Niall is organising the seconding out of the event, the first one I enjoyed immensely. I'm already one behind but I will try and catch up. Post your opinions on your blog or/and go to Torque Control to leave a comment. The full list of stories below. First impressions from the title (! Always judge a story by its title etc.) not enough nanobots and spaceships and too many animals. Perhaps the Elk is a cyborg? Should be fun.
