NEW YORK: Remember the time in your life when you had time to read on a ride whether taking the bus to school or taking a transatlantic plane ride where you actually have the time to read. This is how our Guest Editor feels when she is waiting in Staten Island for the ferry to take her to Manhattan. It’s a twenty minute ride, the ferry passes by the Statue of Liberty and it is the best time of the day to research some good fiction. Be entertained by her selected short stories.
