Reviews of Best Short Shorts (1958)
Review by spiphany (2005-10-09)
This was published by Scholastic in the late fifties, and it definitely reads like fiction written for teens from that period. The stories are decent, and a few of them quite good, but on the whole unremarkable. Some of them I might have enjoyed more if I had come across them in a different context--it tended to feel a bit contrived and as though the reader was being manipulated.
