Teller of Tales - Ray Dacolias I hate giving this such a low rating, not only because I received it through first-reads, but also because I love short stories. Unfortunately, I found that out of the ten short stories comprising this collection, I had to skip several after reading a couple of pages. Whereas some of these tales are deeply imaginative, they were often far too repetitive and descriptive to my liking, and generally lacked the developed characters that one, arguably, can demand, even from a short story.
