Pot Luck Bennett Foster, Five Star, $25.95, Softcover; 800-877-4253.

pot-luckThis publisher has compiled and nicely packaged five of Bennett Foster’s short stories written in the 1940s. Each story has a stand-alone quality revealing Foster’s genius in storytelling. The book includes his great tales, such as the bumpy and raw narrative of “Jerico Takes the Rough String” and the mastery of “Nine Coffins for Bellaire.” Many thanks to Five Star for publishing Foster’s short fiction in book form, so that we can all sit back and enjoy the reading. —Linda Wommack
