Under the Sunset

by Bram Stoker

This short story is really a piece from its larger volume "Under The Sunset" a collection of stories for children by Bram Stoker M.A. 1881..not his most powerful piece, but more appreciated when the larger volume is read

The Fun of Getting Thin

by Samuel Blythe

This account is quite well written and also very funny. Highly quotable for such a short read. It was interesting to see what has changed in the world of health and fitness and what hasn't.

Accelerando

by Charles Stross

This is easily some of the best sci-fi I've ever read. Stross doesn't just tell an amazing story, he suggests one. The main plot revolves around the growing influence of technology in the main characters lives, and their attempts to figure out where their places in the universe are.

But what most impressed me about this story was the incredibly subtle ducking and weaving necessary to write a story that spans centuries and actively involves exponential growth in technology, without wasting a lot of words to explain the technologies themselves.

Fantastic read.
